Where did you get those Gimmick radiator hoses? I haven't heard of them before.
Also, I remember MY BAJA having the same problem with the lower radiator hose leaking, about three months after buying it, and tracing it to the lower radiator hose. Tightened it up with a couple of turns, and have had no problems since. There was a posting about this about 4 years ago, if I remember correctly!
Keep it under 90, folks!
