Air filter canister restoration

I am in the process of restoring a Two-Liter air filter canister.

Would anyone have any of the following correct spare parts?

Two eared wing nut
Two 'Romablock' style clamps
Corrugated rubber air hose (connects the air filter canister to the air intake plenum)

Mark,

Have you looked at Summit Racing for the corrugated connector hose? While sitting upon the ceramic throne of contemplation recently, I noticed they have a wide range of similar hoses for cold-air intakes and turbocharger systems. Heck, you might be able to get one in day glow green.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

I must confess that it would be nice to find an OEM rubber hose, if one is available. The one that I have is not in bad shape, just a bit sticky in places like the rubber is starting to dissolve. I believe Classic Alfa had a similar rubber intake boot for a 1900 but it has a curved 90 degree end that would have to be eliminated. Typically things like that rarely work...

I may have a two ear wing nut coming from a buddy next week...
