Thanks for the tip regarding the straps. I will be sure to order a set along with new mounting hardware. My straps and hardware look like they have seen their better days. In-fact, I shot some PB Blaster on the bolts last night. I spoke with the nice folks at Mid-Fifties about their plastic tank and think I will go that route. Additionally it accepts the stock sending unit without needing an adapter. The only difference is that it is a 15 gal tank. No big deal..I like the idea that I will never have to worry about rust.
