adding a second condenser

I am about to add a second condenser to my custom Ac system.
I plan to run this condenser in series with the existing one, but I am having problems getting the necessary fittings.
I need to run a hose from the #8 connection on one condenser to the #6 connection on the other to join them both in the circuit. #8 hose won’t accept a #6 connection on the other end and the #8 connector will be too big for the #6 hose, so I am not sure how to connect them.

Can anyone suggest how best to do this?

Thank You

Paul

Sounds like it may be easier to have one of the condenser fittings cut off and replaced with the same size (e.g. have both size 8). Otherwise, could make an aluminum connecting pipe with the two different size ends. That might not be best for serviceability, though.

Hopefully someone else can suggest a solution that doesn't involve welding.
