Though what you propose will likely work, I'd recommend going to the junk
yard and rumaging through other CIS fuel lines from Mercedes, BMW, and even
Audi applications and finding what you need that way.  CIS systems, esp. on
your NG, run extremely high fuel pressures, 80+ psi, sometimes close to 100,
and at those pressures, hose clamps are not always reliable.
