Anyone Doing a Cooling System Overhaul?

Long story short, does anyone here have, or will have soon, used coolant hoses for an M60- both upper and lower? I'm willing to reimburse anyone who can ship them out for me (plus some extra for your time). Lmk, PMs are preferred. Thanks all!

The ones on my car are 5 months old (just did a coolant system overhaul myself). I am having clear upper and lower radiator hoses custom made, and the company that makes them needs to have stock/original hoses in order to duplicate them. It takes two weeks to make and I don't want my car to sit for 3 weeks while the hoses are shipped out, mocked up, and shipped back to me. Hence me requesting used/old hoses since they'll be thrown away afterwards.
I am buying clear hoses to see if coolant is actually moving through the hoses. Anyone want a set? They are about $120 for the set, but they might entertain a quantity discount if we get a group buy going.

Damn that's groovy mate ! Can they create them in the stock black but with one clear strip running along its length just so that we can see?

I saved all of mine from my M50. Doubt they would fit but may as well check.
Here are the PNs to cross reference.
Upper: 11531720678
Lower: 11531722852

If you end up getting them new I think FCP was the cheapest back in Jan.
