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.
You could do that but I'd recommend finding some high pressure hose like Bettatail suggested. It would just be less problematic.
