Defrost hose question

Ordered this from bjs and it is round. On my Jeep each existing hose is round on one end and oval on the other. Tried shaping one end but it is challenging and appears too small. I looked online and they either appear to be round or oval. You guys know?

Revised question: what could I used to wrap around the existing hose so the ends are oval and rough but hole throughout get covered up?

Maybe heat it up a bit with a paint stripper heat gun to shape it?

I do not know what either of those are Steve. I bought some furnace foil tape so I am going to try wrapping with that then I do not have to mess with the ends.

He's referring to making an adapter out of fiberglass mat/cloth and a fiberglass resin and hardener.

here is the VERY basic concept....you mix the resin and brush it on both parts, then you wrap a layer of glass matt around both your parts, brush more resin on that layer and apply another layer - its kinda like paper Mache easy peasy, the resin take a few hours to cure so you have plenty of working time - be damn sure to wear surgical gloves or you will have a helluva time getting your fingers clean

like this....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioj1YBm6bJY dont over think it...................just do it, resin / hardener proportion is critical

Steve's method works great and you can get the resin/glass mat from your local Lowes/Ace/HomeDepot. It's really easy and very strong when the resin dries. Plus then you can use the left overs for other projects too.

Another option is to get a few sheets of thin ABS plastic from HD/Lowes/Ace or a craft/hobby/office store and use a heat gun to warm them up and form them to fit the oval. Let cool, then glue the edges together using ABS Pipe glue (or acetone/nail polish remover to weld the plastic), or a cheap rivet gun from Harbor Freight. (This is a good way to also repair/replace the defrost ducts to the windshield under the dash).

Good luck whichever way you try!

Is it still flexible when it dries?
