I guess I don't understand the question. Where are you mounting the bottle? Nitrous bottles fit on either side of the spare tire well facing forward without a problem.

i welded 2 pieces of angle iron across the spare tire well, this way i had a nice flat space to mount the nitrous bottle and also my battery box, imo it's easier to do this because you don't have to drop the tank to get to the bolts under the car, you can reach both top and bottom bolt without climbing under the car btw i didn't have to remove the trunk rods , yes install the bottle facing forward

I have always just mig welded the bolts directly to the sheet metal, why drop the tank or have to worry about trying to get the bolts out later??

you can do it any way you want, i was just saying what i did, it's kinda hard to mount the bottle and battery box, and disconnect switch in a trunk when the floor isn't flat , the angle makes is much easier

I was just saying there is no reason to drop the tank, unless you are worried about welding above it:D:D

Try fitting all that and a 12 inch sub and a fuel cell...having a hatch makes it a little better.

i thought about a fuel cell but i always hated popping the trunk to fill up and dripping gas inside, plus i didn't want the inspection hassels , so i bought a new tank and had it sumped

i didn't have to remove anything to mount my bottle.

Your brackets seem lower than mine.

Not a 15lb bottle like I have.. Get rid of that spare tire and put it in the pit if you have a 15lb bottle but if you have a 10lb well you saw the picture...
