I plumbed the air in my shop using commercially available larger-diameter air hose(!), with appropriate NPT fittings.
Easy to install, meets code for air hoses, and is easily replaced, if needed. Strangely, the stock hose lengths fit the Shop perfectly.
The 3/4" diameter hoses provide all the CFM I have ever required.
