Coolant Bleeder Mod - Lower Profile?

Just wondering if anyone has a mod with a lower profile? I have a BBK 58mm TB and Powerdyne super charger and there isn't enough clearance to add the mods I've seen for the drain hose. Is my only alternative to use a rag when bleeding the system or does anyone have any creative suggestions to keep the coolant off the Opti? Thanks

I've seen 45/90 degree elbows with 1/8 pipe male on one end,and female on the other. Hopefully,that will provide the clearance you require. If not you'll have to get creative by adding a port further out before the top hose turns downward.

Rob the kitchen of aluminum foil. The HD stuff is better. Build a creative flexible waterfall. Forms nicely to the needed shape and route.
