Default WTB - 4mm and 6mm Hoses

I purchased my JRSC used off ebay, with a few extra bits - one, being a semi-complete Aquamist system. The supercharger is off being rebuilt this week, so I'm doing some clean up before I go to 9psi on it - one is to get the WI working.

So - 4 questions - anyone have any idea where I can pick up 6mm and 4mm nylon/polyethalene hose locally? Hydraulics shop, perhaps?

Second - if the pump is mounted higher than the tank, I'll need a priming pump (I'm guessing..) Will a hobbes switch set to a very low PSI be adequate or would I be better off just mounting the pump lower? I'm going with the 5 quart go-kart tank mounted in the trunk.

Also - run the hose through the passenger compartment, or drill through the trunk and run along the pinch weld?

Know if I could pick up some GM WeatherPack connectors at a dealership easily? (Pump didn't come with the female side of the wiring harness, and $45 seems outrageous for $5 in parts... )

Thanks

Thanks.

1/4 inch tubing is available at ACE etc it is commonly used to feed ice makers on refigerators etc. about 20 cents a foot i believe the wire connector stuff can be had at autozone all they consist off mostly or blade connectors etc. Why not just drop through the frigin drain hole like i did and run the hoses under the car.

Excellent. Managed to pick up the 1/4in/6mm stuff tonight. Still hunting for the 5/32in/4mm though.
