A couple years ago i wanted to change the look of my cocker a bit so i ran the hoses over top of my barrel.
I kinda liked it and noticed no change in function so i left it.
The hoses wore out but today i found 20ft of hose for about $5 from a pneumatic supply store. Having nothing but time and alot of hose after work today i decided to run with the previous design a bit more and ended up with a pretty sweet looking setup. dont have pics yet but i will. All together ive probably got about 2ft of hose between the 3 hoses. All 3 hoses run over the barrel and wrap fluidly around the front end parts. Everything is tucked tight enough to still fit the front cover without pinching anything.
I am wondering why i have never seen any other pics with a similar hose set up. Has anyone ever done this before? I would think so but cant find any pics. Any ideas why not? I would think its a pretty cheap, harmless mod that looks different with no negative effects i have found and it costs all of about $5 to do. What do you guys think?
