From Bring-a-Trailer an MG J2 restomod. A very interesting read. I didn't know that heat shrink hose clamps existed.

Here is a link to them, might look nice on upper hoses that are visible.

This was an incredible read.
Although my favorite saying is" Anyone can restore a car, it takes a real man to take a torch to it", this guy made it better and different. The car can be restored if necessary but this is way better.

Dayco (?) had a patent on them; they were trying to sell replacement hoses with the clamps bonded on. You had to use a special heat gun to shrink the clamps, and there was no way to get them off without destroying the hose, which was probably the point.

The annoying Oetiker spring clips maintain a constant tension and are re-useable, even if they were designed to facilitate the sale of special Oetiker pliers to spread them.
