Welcome to water cooling. You learned the first lesson, you can only plan so much until you get everything and actually set it all up, At that point the plan is out the window. It only took me 2 and half months to finish my loop, plans be dammed.
If able it's always better to buy more and not need it then not have it when you need it.
agreed, I have been water cooling for 20 years, and I still have never been able to get everything I need for the build, before I actually tried to build it. weather it be getting the wrong length of bolts, or just forgetting that one extension wire, their is always something, that I still need to get. this upgrade took me a little over two months to complete, and I thought I had everything I needed before I started.
