Before we ran all of my heater hoses under the inner fender I used braided heater hose with the chrome ends. My upper radiator hose is the chrome bendable (can't recall correct name)

Got them from H&H, but Ecklers or Danchuck will have it. When you cut to length, wrap duct tape around it and saw through the tape...
