Heater hose bulkhead

I need a bulkhead for my heater hoses, preferably polished aluminum. My car has no air so I am having trouble finding something for just the 2 heater hoses. Everything I found is for cars with air. Anybody seen one of theses somewhere? Thanks.

Or if you are into making your own, you can take a look in my journal for one way you might do it.

I made my bulkhead by massaging some copper fittings to fit.





I then used a normal after market chrome hose kit (below) to connect to the block. I made the "dress up ring" shown on the left in this picture from a short length of aluminum tubing.



Here is how the bulkhead looks from the engine side of the firewall. The arrow notes a small copper ring soldered to the end of the bulkhead to prevent the hose from popping off.



And with the hose kit connected.



And finally, a shot of both hoses connected up to the bulkheads.
