Hello all, hope someone can adivse me.

I've renovating an old, old house, and am in the process of replacing the radiators. So far, so good, but the last radiator in the house is a pig. The existing pipework is set into tiling and is totally immovable, with no give or play in the pipe at all.
Getting the old radiator off was getting the point where I was considering cutting it off as there just wasn't enough play to unhook the tails.

Instead of trying to refit it, I bought a slightly narrower one instead intending to use extending tails to fit it into place. However, the reason the rads were removed was to skim the walls wiht plaster, and now the tails of the radiator will not align precisely with the existing pipework. If there was a bit of play in the pipework then this wouldn't be an issue, but there is absolutely zero give.

So, what can I do to give myself enough play? Flexible hose would be perfect but they don't seem to exist for radiators...
