The hose that I purchased was a Eastman universal corrugated drain hose. It's 6' long, and it has various sections. The rubber end is too thick to fit on the mounting post, but if you cut it off, it fits perfect.
We'd like to see what you found for your heat shielding too. Did you find some of the very thin aluminum tape with adhesive backing (like some use as a quick patch for rust holes in the body)? Or did you find a better solution?
From memory, I think the tube just goes straight down. Too much snow on my car to get a pic right now. But snaking it more to the passenger's side may help avoid the engine heat to some degree?
The hose is thin enough that you can use a hose clamp with it.
And the heat shield sleeve is a Cool-It Thermo Tec Express Sleeve. It's a aluminized sleeve with velcro and seems to fit great.
Now I just need to figure out how to route it to the bottom. If anyone has any pictures of their cowl drain hose installed, that would be super helpful for me. Here are some pictures of the hose and the sleeve.
In case anyone is interested, here's how it turned out. Works great, and the heat shield is plenty long enough to protect the whole hose. I tried to route it straight down, but there just wasn't enough room, especially with the slightly larger OD of the hose and the heat shield. But this placement seems to put less stress o the hose, and it drains just fine.
Into week three of staying home, I wish I could say I've fixed everything wrong with my car. Unfortunately, at least until very recently, my job has consumed the majority of my waking hours (I'm a communications director for a large public health agency).
My list is short:

Just saw this was posted: 1978 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT | eBay
Does anyone know this car? Looks "for sale" perfect; nice wheels. Thought something this nice would have been in these circles.
I have been in the market for an Alfetta to pair with my GTV6 and this is def. at the top end it seems.
I had been looking for a 24mm bar for my Alfetta sedan, but a couple fell through and the others available didn't have end link bushings. This made them a no go for me as I don't have a vise or press right now and can't access one during the pandemic. So, I bought a 27mm bar from...
Back in January I added an 86 GTV6 to the fleet. I've been doing a lot of reading since then. It was last registered in 2006, it also had a bunch of work to it in the spring of 2019 to try and bring it up to roadworthy standards which sure seemed to add up to a really big bill for the previous...
As we are nearing completion of our 24v GTV6 project, I figured it was time to share our journey with the Alfa community. My Dad bought this GTV6 back in 2008 at the Chicago Alfa Convention from Mike Besic. The Besic's gave it a Milano Verde engine swap with all of the tricks done to it. It had...
