Default wall mount stainless sink problem

I'm trying to put a wall-mount steel sink on a brick wall, but the
supply lines are being pinched between the wall and the sink.

The problem is that the threads of the faucet supply intakes run
horizontal towards the wall, instead of vertical towards the ground. I
thought I could just buy a couple of elbows, screw them on pointing
down, and everything would be great. But, I can't find the elbows
anywhere, web, hardware stores, etc...

What I'm looking for is a 90 degree elbow, with 5/8" male and female
( I've found 3/8", 1/4", 1/2", but no 5/8" )

Here's a pic of what I'm talking about:

Can anyone help??

How about removing some of the brick for clearance?
What are the actual thread sizes you need? Example, 5/8 x 11, 5/8 x
18, straight thread, NPT? British Standard pipe is 5/8 x 14.
Sizes like that can be found on race car oil coolers, for example, and
fittings ordered from such specialists. Seems like an odd one. Good
