[200q20v] questions about brake hoses, pads...

I've decided it's time to replace my oem brake hoses. I considered a
set of braided-ss hoses but finally decided to use plain ol' oem
type. The Family Album shows the following brake hose p/n info:
rear: 443 611 775F (M10x1.0x215)
Only this version of rear hose is shown, irrespective of whether for
the vented (as in our cars) or solid rotor setup in other models. I
assume this is correct?
front: 4441 611 707 (M10x1.0x250)
The data for the front hoses seems a little ambiguous as the picture
shows this hose along with a standard (non-UFO) brake rotor, but
doesn't explicitly mention the Girling G60 caliper that I have. Can
anyone tell me if this p/n and/or size is correct for the '91 200q
with converted (G60) brakes?
I'm thinking about using a set of "track" pads (up front) for the
Watkins Glen session later this month. I had installed new rotors
along with conventional street pads about 3 or 4 thousand miles ago.
Does it make sense to just swap in the track pads prior to the track
weekend, or must the rotors be resurfaced, considering the use
they've had? I've been told that new pads can't properly be bedded on
used rotors unless they (the rotors) have been skimmed to remove the
surface hardness. Comments? Suggestions for pads (G60)?
