Ah the hazards of Porsche lego sets...

Nearly done with swapping in a 911 front suspension on the '74 blue 914/6 build and hit an unexpected issue.

The brake hose that was on the car with its original suspension fits a strut with an open mounting point whereas the 911 struts I put on the car have a closed and too narrow closed opening.

In other worse the metal end of the brake hose won't fit through the opening on the new strut with the red arrow and is designed to use an open mounting point as shown by the yellow arrow.

Anyone know offhand what year 911 brake hose would work? I am thinking pre-1970 but that is a bit of a guess frankly.
