I just spend 5 to 10 minutes looking at my fittings and seeing how they will actually fit into the pedestal. The good news is that the 90° rotary does fit into the bottom port on one of the radiators and clear the bottom plate in the pedestal. It even clears it when I add a Monsoon Economic Compression fitting although the clearance after adding the compression fitting is very small.
The bad news is that I cannot use a pass-though on the front panel like I had hoped (see spoiler pic below).
There isn't the required amount of room between front inner panel and the the front cover panel for the pass-through / plug combination.
Ok, no worries. Change of plans for the drain required.
I am now going to exit the bottom port with a 90° Rotary (as above) but face the rotary down the length of the radiator ... all the way to the back where I will have the valve, a male to male fitting and then the pass-through and plug. So ... the drain will be at the back.
Fine - I can live with that.

, the feedback regarding the fitting / tube 'color' combination for the pedestal has been very underwhelming. Come on folks ... do you have a preference?

There is no reason to have the drain and the radiator connector match.
