YES ! That is perfect- love the barbs. Street el's and union might cost more than regular els and nipple and flow less.
Street el's and union? I know nothing about blumbing except that you shouldn't pour cooked rice down a sink. Is what you mentioned "street el's and union" something different than what's in the picture? And is "flowing less" good or bad?

So basically, I'm good going with whats pictured?

Your plumbing setup should work, but as others have indicated there may be some flow restriction. I doubt it would affect your cooling system since the "U" modification simply cuts out the rear heater loop.
Oh you mean as far as pressure? The guy mention that but said i should be alright... but he also said he wasn't sure...

There would likely be some flow restriction with those plumbing parts, but the back heater isn't there anymore so it shouldn't matter. Most of us choose two 1" 90 degree copper elbows to make a nice lightweight "U" shape.

flow restriction depends on your bus' heat routing... carpenter for instance uses Parallel routing so you in fact BLOCK OFF the rear heater ports and not loop. Bluebird uses series routing so the flow will cause slow-flow of coolant if its restricted too much.. since you are removing heaters and still have what looks to be 3/4" lines you shouldnt notice any loss of heating capacity in your front heaters..
