Is there a best material to use to join 2 radiator hoses?

I need to cut a upper radiator hose and rotate it for a custom radiator install. Is there a best material to use to join 2 radiator hoses (copper, stainless)?
Do they need to be flared?
Is there a product out there already to do the job?

Thanks
Max

I agree, if you have a piece of s/s that will fit the I.D. of the hose then use it. I always rough up about 2" of the tube ends with 80 grit to give the hose something to grab.

I used a kit that came with various sizes of plastic tubes that were barbed at the ends. It came with a paste/glue to be put all over the plastic part that slid into the rubber hose ends. I opted to use my trusty ol Permatex ultra black. Been well over a year still no leaks.
