Think these might work as right side up… hoping so. I just re-sized them a bit. Nice work Saline, van is looking good.

I put this DIY together 2 years ago. I think my tank (10 gallons) is probably bigger than your manchester tank, but still relevant. Let me know if you have any questions.

That's a nice looking project!

I know its well after the fact but I'm hoping you treated the raw sheet metal edges left after the cutting with some sort of rust preventative material? The lower pinchweld areas are already highly prone to rust, assuming you're in a climate where that's an issue?

Saline, would totally love more info on tank model and remote filler info. I am already sick of dealing with "off board" propane.

Thanks. Yes, the project wasn't completely finished in the DIY pictures. I actually built a wooden frame between the two body panels, so that the inner body isn't exposed to the elements, and sealed everything up with great stuff foam. I also painted the sheet metal with some spray paint. I live in they SF bay area, so rust isn't too much of a concern.

I'll update this with a few pictures of the finished tank mount when I have a moment.

Here are some more pictures of how I undermounted the propane tank, and how I weatherproofed between the inner and outer body panels. It is a ten gallon flame king tank. [IMG][/IMG]
