Retropower  were doing  silicon hoses for GTE and redtop,not sure about 18 hundred but worth a try.

JS Performance are the manufactures of the hose kits that Retropower sell. It might be worth contacting them, not 100% sure if they made 1.8 hoses, but can't be too different to the XE engine. If you have the originals they can easily make you a set, my car was used to make the XE hoses that are now used.

When I was living near Lincoln I use to visit them some weekends and spend hours talking and watching them manufacture the hoses all by hand, they defo. know their trade and I am pleased they are getting some recognition as they have moved to bigger premises from where I use to visit. Another company started from a shed at their parents home.
