What a surprise you cut them all off. Can't beat the grinder on esprit nuts and bolts. Far easier than a spanner 

Only here once

Great progress Mike, you'll probably have a radiator specialist closer to you, but if you get stuck I can recommend Advanced Autocooling just up the M5 in Bristol.

Avoid the cheap Chinese silicon hoses, a few horror stories on here about the quality and fit. I used Roose Motorsport fantastic quality, perfect fit, but a bit pricey.
