New fuel tank mount

After the quick mockups with the new seat belt locations I needed to raise the fuel tank to give the extra clearance. I need to raise it about 25mm, I decided to make a completely separate subframe to mount the tank to, then mount the subframe to the chassis.

First job was to cut out the old mount tabs .... out with the trusty angle grinder.

Subframe mocked up, and sitting in the chassis. That is all I had time to complete. The plan is to get the subframe mounts completed and get it mounted in the chassis, still considering adding rubber mounts. Once that is complete mount the fuel tanl to the subframe.
