make it out of aluminum, then run short hoses...
I used 1" gates blue stripe heater hose on mine, it just has to sweep...

He means to make the main part, the middle section, out of tubing and just use hose on each end to connect all together. That way you will have a smaller amount of rubber hose to possible burst and you can clamp the tubing to the frame or anywhere out of the way for a clean looking routing. Look back at some of the builds for ideas, there are many great examples.
