Default What rad hose for over the rad IC pipes?

I dropped my rad mounts down and forward and tilted my radiatio backwards at the top.

I've figured out my upper rad hoses(tig'd a 90 degree to my thermostat housing) and ended up using the stock lower rad hose up top.

Any suggestions for the bottom? What did you use?

Do you have pictures? I'm assuming you did all this to avoid making relief cuts in the hood?

I bent some wire in the shapes I needed and went to an old-school auto parts store that actually has all the hoses out in the open where you can touch them without being supervised. Found everything I needed that way. Universal flex is FTL.

I usually agree but it's a hose that see's minimal vibrations and heat. Plus I was short on time. I want to redo my hot side pipe and I'll probably source a better hose at the same time.
