Default Windshield washer relocating

Figured, since this forum is called "Performance and Brainstorming" Why not put it here? Got an idea, which I had breifly thought of several weeks ago. Windshield washer bottle relocating.. since that and the coolant overflow bottles are VERY ugly.. and take up quite a bit of space, why not relocate them? I have a headlight washer bottle located under the frame, hidden by the front fascia. Now, here is where it gets a little tricky.. making a Y pipe from the headlight washers to the windshield washers.. so I can power both from the same pump. However, I am afraid this isn't going to be powerful enough, and will proove to fail. So, as a backup plan, I thought of relocating the original washer bottle to somewhere else.. perhaps under the top frame rail, right around the driver'* side headlight/turn signal, with a homemade bottle, and using the original pump. I like Plan A better, because it'* easier.. but I want everyone'* opinion first. And before you go saying, "They don't look that bad" Let me show you a pic without them.

Yeah it does take up room, but it is not often you have to get there, it is not in the way, easy to access, so I don't wee why go through the trouble to relocate it unless you planned to install something else in it'* place??
