I know this thread goes astray of what you are asking, but I thought perhaps you hadn't viewed it before (pic of a wrap on the third page )

I just put an old sock on the resevoir. The sock gets dirty but at least I don't have fluid spraying around the engine bay.

A happy sock works great! The extra stiffness keeps it from coming off and spraying everywhere.

I actually just had my power steering fluid and reservoir replaced and had planned to use Tom@EAS' method of installing the 1M reservoir with a reduction fitting or stepped hose, but the shop said unless I knew the exact reduction fitting part that would work, they didn't want to mess with it. Tom unfortunately couldn't recall the exact hose sizes, so for at least a while longer I'll just deal with it. That overflow kit looks interesting though, I may consider that.
