Is Receiver-Driver Install location critical?

Make: Jaguar
Model: MK IX
Engine Size: 3.8L
Refrigerant Type: R134

I'm installing an A/C system on my old '59 Jaguar saloon. Because of space limitations up front for evaporator, I'm installing a rear-mount system with dual evaporators/fans in the trunk and rear package tray.

The engine compartment is pretty tight, and I'm wondering if there is any reason why I can't install the receiver-drier in the trunk, near the evaporator, rather than closer to the condensor? In the trunk, it will be some 15+ feet from the condensor.

I see no issues with doing this.

That will work fine. Anywhere in the pipeline between the condenser and TXV is OK, but the receiver drier must be mounted upright vertically and plumbed for the proper flow direction.
