Preventing Burned Clutches

Like y'all's opinion on this. My preference is not to have barb fittings, as leery of them popping off. Further, the external cooler be mainly due to me burning up the clutches, and don't want to do that again. Figure when it gets below 64*F use cardboard to block the cooler?

So, is both sides of the transmission hose the same size?

This is the plan I like to have critiqued:
supply (driver's side) hard line, 16mmx1.5 to AN6 adapter, braided high pressure hose (braided to protect against the belts), AN6 to 3/8"NPT on the external cooler. Then the fluid goes through the cooler. AN6 to 3/8" adapter, AN6 hose, 16mmx1.5 to AN6 adapter on internal oil cooler. The fluid then goes through the internal oil cooler, so as picks up engine heat, allowing the transmission to have proper, quick, warm up.

Only concern is the AN hose.Other option is have a couple hoses made up.
