    I need a heat resistant sleeve to fit my full flow oil lines near my header on my class 11. The fittings are AN8 and the line is the size that goes with that. It's cloth braided line and on a full body car the lines are routed nearby and it's always made me nervous about the lines being near the exhaust although, they are run through the rear tin with rubber insulating the hose from the sheetmetal hole. Anyone have a good source for something like this? I need a total of about 2ft of sleeve that has an ID of about 1".

    I would think regular exhaust wrap would work good. You can find that stuff anywhere.

    ORW sell various diameters by the foot - in stock in black. It is what you are looking for.

    If you are in Costa Mesa, Mesa Hose is your best bet.

    That Orange hosing that you wrap over the lines works well, I bought mine from G and J to fit over my SS braided fuel lines.
