Hi
I just fitted my ARB compressor, and it came with an 8mm hose and nonstandard fitings. I am using my old 10mm hose with air tool fittings (Ryco I think). I just unscrewed the ARB one and whizzed it in the dump, and fitted my standard quick connect fitting.

Works fine with 10mm hose, although 8mm would take up less room. BTW, my 10mm hose is twice as long.

Cheers

I used 3/8" High pressure fuel line hose. It's rated to handle the under bonnet temps and is rated to 12 bar. I did have some std compressor hose on but it burst due to the heat. (I use a bluetounge but it's the same principle).
