Quick question. I've been re-freshing the top end of my 931 for awhile now, and I'm at the point where I'm replacing as many coolant and vacuum lines as I can. My question is this: Where can I get either some OEM or higher quality hose clamps?

1. all the ones on the car now are super corroded, and I would like to refresh them

2. I don't want to just get an assortment from a basic auto shop, because I do question their quality

3. Would be nice to have new ones for visual/cleanliness reasons

Where would you recommend me buying a set of nicer quality, assorted set of hose clamps?

I recently purchased hose clamps here:

It took awhile and the prices are a bit high, but I found just what I needed.

No guarantees it'll be cheaper, but Bel-Metric has a good selection of metric hose clamps too:

The Norma TORRO band clamps look stock to me...

Bookmarked. And many of the hose clamps available in yellow zinc. Very nice.
