Frost plugs, of the correct diameter, that sit over the ends of the tubes weld up nicely.

Since you already have the hose, and if you can't return it, just push a large ball beating into the end, and leave it.

Or just have someone weld a cap on each nipple, but it kind of fucks it up (just like crimping the ends over) for if you ever want to use the defroster.

 

I've seen a lot of SCCA cars that wish they had kept the heater core, and defroster option, when they have an event in the rain, and their windshield fogs up.

But they saved 3 lbs of weight.....Woopy ding dong!

 

I've made machined plugs before, used with a short length of hose, but that still looks crappy.

I wouldn't use the rubber caps they make for closing off nipples, as they don't have any fiber, or cords in them, and I've seen them burst.

Not sure if that is a good idea....

When the heater is in the circuit, and you are running the heater (cold weather), the water is being cooled by the heater core before it goes back to the water pump.

When the weather is hot, and you are not running the heater, the flow is blocked by the valve, and not returning to the water pump.

 

So now, you are running hot water directly back to the water pump, in hot weather.

 

Good luck with that.....
