Coolant reservoir needs to be relocated

Hey guys, I just put a new radiator in with twin fans, and there is no place now to mount the reservoir. Anyone else have this issue, but came up with a idea as where to move it?

Can you make a little bracket out of some steel and just move it further out or away from the fans?

I'm thinking I may have to relocate the battery to the trunk and mount the tank in its place. There is literally no room

The fans sit flush but take the length of the radiator.

Im not sure if the overflow reservoir has to be mounted within close proximity to the radiator or if it can be mounted anywhere?? If it can be located elsewhere, without negative issues,I would go to the pull-a-part or buy aftermarket and get a bottle that'll fit in front of your cai tube,on the passenger side of the radiator.I believe you can buy a round canister shaped bottle that might fit nicely.Another location would be inside the driver fenderwell,if you were willing to do away with the windshield washer reservoir, that currently resides at this location. You would have to access the reservoir(for fillup)from the existing hole in the fenderwell or buy a squared off reservoir with a filler neck that will protrude slightly through the existing hole.

I see that youre located in Smyrna,Tn.If you need somewhere to buy take-off or aftermarket parts,and youre not already aware of their existence, Delk Performance is located in Lebanon,Tn.Its a good place to get performance parts,especially if you need it in a hurry.Theyre located on Fall Creek Rd,directly across from the Super Speedway off of 840.

I dont know if there are any junkyards near you or not,but Pull-A-Part is right off of Centennial Blvd,in West Nashville,and theyve got a ton of cars you can search through,if youre trying to stay with that oem plastic look.
