I would try 2 1" flat stock with a hole in the center of each run a bolt with a spacer between the 2 so that the flat stock doesn't bow out. This is after you line the fittings flats inline with each other. A 90 deg open wench might help getting them in line.
Yes, the above is close to what I was going to suggest. You can buy right angle open end wrench adapters, use one on each fitting, put a carriage bolt head through the hole on each wrench end, and fit a plate between each, and use nylock nuts to secure the plate to the two opposite facing wrench end adapters. This way neither fitting can move from where it's set.
