Hi oldpunk, thanks for the writeup... quick question, the space under my tank barely fits my 10# co2 tank, i'm left with about a 1/4" of space above the tank handle. My question is, is it ok to add extensions the piece that bolts on the co2 tank?

So something like this:

Co2 valve > standard 320 nut/nipple > female 45* elbow 1/4 NPT > 2" hex long nipple extension 1/4 NPT > female 45* elbow 1/4 NPT > 2" hex long nipple 1/4 NPT > regulator?

I need to extend the regulator below the handle so that the dual gauges have clearance from the top of the ceiling of the tank stand.

Thanks for your help in advance.
