Great video Geek.
I think they cut away just before he cursed what a pain it is to get the OVAL hose he just created into the Fitting, and the nipple into the deformed hose end now.....
W/ the correct cutter it goes much better and you end up w/ parts that fit together better and your thumb doesn't look like a pin cusion when you stick it with all those sharp stainless wires.
As for the breaded hose kits.
My kits come w/ a clear poly covered stainless braided hose. It looks great and will keep anything rubbing against it from damage.
I could have gone w/ the Push lock rubber hose as both are plenty strong for this task, but I felt the stainless looked better for the same price. I also found a tank fitting that has a slightly larger ID for faster flow when it comes to drain time making your future services even less time consuming.
A paper template is included in the DIY kits to lay over the bracket and mark for your bracket mod.
