Heater hose questions

The car in question is a 69 Berlina with a 2l w/SPICA from a 79 Spider. the heater hose from the pump to the heater box needs replacing. So 2 questions:
1) what is the proper routing for this hose? - when I removed the air box I found it "resting" on the rt frame rail on top of the fuel lines and next to SPICA. Upon examination I found wear normally caused by rubbing.
2) can someone recommend a good quality product for replacement - I don't want to do this twice. I thought perphasps steel braiding would be cool... Or am I just over thinking this? Any thoughts?
