    no

    chrome couplings just above the boxing (to save messing about with that)

    length of chrome pipe

    the right rad valves

    and two chrome elbows (or bend the pipe)

    drain down and new bottle of inhb

    approx

    I've got to be honest I wouldn't want to look at that after a bathroom refit. There's Boxing below. Should be straight chrome valves and straight pipes into them. Maybe more upheaval but surely worth it?

    Unfortunately the boxing below doesn't come out as far as the radiator does so a straight pipe down wouldn't work either.

    Go to Brewers decorator centre and ask their advice. If you paint them it should look okay. It will look better than having chrome compression fittings.
