HELP NEEDED--Icon rear res shocks and bump stop install tips/tricks

Doing my stage 4 install and noticed that installing the reservoir on the 2.0 rear shocks is going to be a challenge because of the mounting brackets for the hydraulic air bump stops getting in the way of routing what appears to be a too-short reservoir hose. Anybody running this settup have any tips for this mounting (pun intended) conundrum?

The Icon photos show the resi hose running across the bumpstop bracket. Try and arch the hose so it isn't tight across the bracket and chafe the hose. You may have to drill another hole for resi bracket that is closer to the bumpstop bracket since you are changing angle of resi hose.
