Replace pvc and mount on wall: hot and cold water lines

Today, I made the hot and cold water pvc lines and mounted the hot water line to the wall.  I also created a temp line from the tank to the new pvc line.  All the water is being run off the hot water line now.  My plan is to try and switch over tomorrow.

Supplies:  1) 8 x 18" long 1 1/2" pvc,  2) 2 x 5" long 1 1/2" pvc,  3) 10 x 3/4 x 3/4 barbs,  4) 4 x 1 1/2" elbow,  5) 2 x 1 1/2" cap,  6) 10 x 1/2" male x 1/2" female elbow threaded,  7) 2 x 1 1/2" male threaded end piece,  8 ) 10 x 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 3/4" threaded,  9) 5 x 5′ x 3/4" i.d. red hose,  10) 5 x 5′ x 3/4" i.d. blue hose,  11)  6 x 1 1/2" medal clamps,  12) misc. pieces of pvc to connect to the tank  13) 10 x 3/4 x 1/2 barbs,  14) 10 x 1" clamps

I did have a problem today.  The plumbing supply place (plumbingsupply.com) sent me one wrong connection.  It was supposed to be threaded instead it is slip.  I noticed of course, after I glued the whole thing together.  Also, it is in the middle.  But I need to look for a bushing.  A 3/4" slip to 3/4" female threaded.  Sounds unlikely but I will have to check tomorrow.
