With the upper braces in place and the straps made, the tank was once again hoisted into place. At this point, one end of the strap was mounted to the coilover crossmember via a small 1 1/2-inch nut and bolt. As for the other end of the strap, shown here, a 3-inch-long bolt was dropped down from the rear crossmember. Then the nut was chased up the 3-inch bolt until the straps tightened and raised the tank up against the upper braces installed earlier. Once tight, that means the tank is locked and mounted in position.
