My only addition to this thread is beware of stagnation temps using PEX. I would stick with black automotive type radiator hose with stainless clamps or solder copper to join collectors. Just my 2 cents...

Personaly I've been using the automotive radiator hose on my 2 evacuated tube collectors for over 8 years now and no leaks, no issues.

Good luck! looks like a fun project for sure.
