Default Do you need any special tools to change the Radiator hoses on a 2003 350z?

I just bought new blue hoses for my car and I wanted to know if I need any special tools to change them? Is it easy or should I take it to a local Mechanic? Thanks.

I used adjustable pliers to remove the stock hoses. Correct me if I'm wrong, iirc its not like a Honda, squeezing the hoses will not get rid of the air pockets.

^^very straightforward, about as difficult as changing a tire.
