147 Front Brake Hoses

Does anyone have any tips on changing the front brake hoses on a 147.

I can get them off, but the union bolts are seized and all that happens is that I start to twist the metal brake pipe.

I have an idea about taking the calipers off, so that when I put the hoses back on I can effectively turn the calipers to tighten it all up instead of the hose ( which will already be attached at the top to the metal brake pipes). If you tighten one end, the the other end will undo.

Any suggestions welcome

Some plusgas (or similar), then keep widdling the nut forwards and backwards until they separate.
