Back with another small update.

First off, no progress other than what I did today was made because I was on vacation. I took a roadtrip with my family through the Badlands, Black Hills, and Wyoming, staying in the Colter Bay Village cabins for a week. I'm going to take a second to plug my Instagram if you want to see some of the beautiful pictures I took here: https://www.instagram.com/nolan_peterson/

Anyway, I ordered a gates 45 degree hose for my lower radiator hose, but it didn't work well because of sizing. A problem with the JEGS radiator I used is the inlet/outlet size is that of a GEN 1 small block chevy, not an LS, so they are 1/4" larger each. I looked around for hoses then remembered that Pegasus has a large silicone hose selection in their catalog. Here's a picture with part numbers/descriptions:



These combine to make this:





I may try putting a spring in the lower to prevent the slight kink, but I don't think it will be an issue.
