Also make sure you protect the lines from abrasion. Unlike a house that stays still, a bus in movement can rub hoses in ways you will not believe. Be overly cautious when a line goes through a partition or metal piece. There are plastic shields that slip in holes to insulate lines from other materials. Also tie-wrap them as often as possible. Take a look into your engine compartment and note how rubber hoses are secured. You will NEVER be too careful.
