Default Pitot/aoa tube routing

Good morning!
I'm not really happy with my Pitot/AOA tube routing in this area that passes through the forward spars. Seems like an excessive bend and even more so if I were to use the snap bushing. What have some done in this area?
Thanks![IMG]hhttps://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-pvkDbVp/0/6d4f53c7/L/IMG_0394-L.jpgttp://[/IMG]

I use a heat gun to soften the tube and generate tighter bends. Just don't get it soft enough to deform the tube wall overall shape. Hold your angle about 10* more than you want and hold it there while it cools. They are thermoset plastics.
