Has anyone found (recently) a source for factory correct (blue in color) brake hose (reservoir to master cylinder)?

I actually prefer the black Continental brand hose.  I've found it easier to get onto the plastic nipples on the fluid reservoir and on the plastic elbows on the brake master.  But some folks like the blue for the original look.

I actually broke a plastic nipple off of a new fluid reservoir trying to get some new blue hose on it.  I had it lubed up pretty good with brake fluid too.  That's when I switched.  Even the black hose isn't "easy" to get on, but at least it isn't impossible.  There's probably a trick that I'm missing...

Just FYI this Volkswagen shop is near my house and I got a bunch of the original German fuel hose from them. I was way cheaper than anyone else online. When I picked up my hose I noticed that they had the blue brake hose as well. May be a good option for you guys. You get a little over 3 ft of it for $16.95. Obviously you don't need that much but maybe you could offer the left overs to someone else on the forum.
