Hark back to the days of yore: "Longer, lower, wider!"
Put those fabricating skillz you've demonstrated to work and make a reservoir that carries the same (or more) volume without the height. As I understand it, you don't need a head of pressure (height), you only need sufficient volume to keep all lines filled plus the master plus some safety margin.
You might also look around the boneyard for brake fluid reservoirs that are lower but either longer or wider.
