    Finally some update to show.
    This have dragging out forever but it was a bit more involved then i first thought.
    I started with the floorpan behind the seat where i allso wanted the gastank and battery to be.

    Next task was to cut the tank to fit with the battery. I allso needed to relocate the filler.

    Then i bended up the supports for the tank and massaged them around to fit.

    Then i could weld them to the floorpan.
    I allso needed to make a hole were the bottom pan on the tank is.

    But when i testfitted it all i got interference problem with the backrest against the tank.
    So i did some cut outs for the exhaust in order to move it all backwards.
    Then i found out the bends on the exhaustpipes differ a bit betwin the sides.
    I had to take the drivers side down and reshape it a bit to gain another 7/8 backwards.
    All this made my floorpan about 1-3/8 to short but started with plenty to remove.
    But i can now tilt the backrest to where i want it to be.
    Made some tankbands and brackets with reinforcements to mount the tank.
    Allso made a batterybox in sheetmetal as a extra protection betwin the tank and battery.
    That needed to be bolted. I am not sure i can put the tank in and out otherwise.

    Looks like we are following the same basic plan.
