XK120 windshield washer hose / bracket finish

I am advised that the very first thing I need to do before assembling anything else is to install the windshield washers. Two questions:

  1. What’s the o.d. of the hose? (presumably black rubber. Viart indicates almost 12’ required)
  2. What’s the correct finish for the bottle bracket C5473/8?



I can help with your first question:

Does this answer your question?

As far as I know, Trico UK painted all brackets black, whereas Trico USA had them (cadmium?) plated.
