I am about to close up the walls in a shower and notice that the feed for
the shower head is not centered in the shower. I am planning on pulling the
makup off the wall and wonder if I am smarter to cut the feeder line to the
shower head and move it over sweating 45 degree elbows or am I smarter to
cut the hot and cold supply lines and move them over with 45 degree elbows
and leave the supply line to the shower head untouched? I don't want to
create a bottleneck. HELP

While it will probably be more pleasing to the eye, there is no requirement to
have the shower head in the middle of the shower compartment. The only UPC code
requirement (this may or may not apply depending on which jurisdiction you're
in) is that the head not be pointing at the shower threshold or opening.
Having said that, you could do either with out much concern of any problem.
However if you're concerned about the shower head being centered, wouldn't you
also want the valve to be centered under the head. And if that is the case the
latter course of action would be what you should persue
