Got the mock up and fabrication completed. I mounted the tanks in place Today. I think this is going to look great when finished.

I always like folks who err on the the side of caution when it comes help forums.

I have no problem with 4 threads. I mentioned about looking for bind points when mounting tanks
since I have seen people think the threads are come along type fasteners for line up.

Tank munting tabs crack and inside walls crack when mounted like this eventually.
