How I put a Bionx brake sensor on a Shimano XT disc brake lever

This one was a tough one. There was not a flat surface to attach the sensor and have it be aligned with the magnet button. So I heated and bent a piece of ABS plastic to 90 degrees. I attached the Bionx sensor to it and then mounted the brakes to the front of the fluid reservoir. Lastly i mounted the magnetic button to the underside of the lever.

This is not a guide on installing the Bionx brake sensor, rather how I mounted it in my particular situation. See pictures below:
