Need hydraulic hose ends fitted - recommendations (Southampton)?

The title says it all really. I need to get new ends put on two hydraulic steering hoses where the thieves cut them off (fortunately they cut right at the end so plenty of hose left). Can anyone recommend anywhere in the Southampton area?

Tim, make sure you get the correct thread on the fitting, a lot of the American stuff is NPT which is similar to, but just not quite BSP.

As good as Aquafax are, you won't get steering hose ends fitted by them.

What make of steering do you have? If it's seastar, then you can buy reuseable ends that you can fit yourself. Otherwise, it's a case of removing hoses, and having new ones swaged on.

Yeh, but I don't think they have the ability to fit them for you.
