Hi Lee - that's all I did on the Green Machine, just extended the radiator hoses up to the front using 32mm copper plumbing. Soldered elbows, ty-wrapped to the chassis rails.
I made up some adapters to tee the 15mm pipes to the 8mm hoses from the expansion tank, and a 15mm three-way tee for the other heater branch, but essentially I just duplicated the plumbing in the Haynes manual. It seems to work too - people complain about the weak heaters in Alfasuds, but my heater seems to work fine!
(It isn't an Alfa matrix though).
Not many kit car build-up companies remember the Alfa boxer these days (all Zetecs and Vauxhall redtop). Do it yourself and you'll be sure no one has made pig's ear of it.
Alfanauts are GO!!!
