either landrover or specialist in liverpool or if you can diy it and want copper pipe you can get 8mm copper gas pipe that is guaranteed to take 150 bar so if far higher than any car will ever need and can be found at numerous plumbing places as come in 10 metre rolls for not that much money about 20 if i remember last time i bought it or try plumbing place on brighton street in wallasey think it's called ryan's and they used to sell it by the metre

I changed the fuel pipes on my Starion with rubber/steel braided stuff. You can use those Q shaped clips or jubilee clips to clamp the ends.
Hoseman, the Disco clutch hose is the same on the MGF's, it has those crazy American size unions, I've been meaning to get a new one done for mine. smile
Worth getting it done properly. smile

As long as the end fittings are salvagable i can make/repair ANY hose/pipe. oil, Fuel, Chemical, Gas, Water etc. I carry over 2000 different fittings and adaptors on my van which is as fully fitted workshops.
