it's been a while since I removed the fuel tank but do the fuel tank strap bolts screw into captive nuts on the chassis? Of course, one would need to soak these hardware in PB Blaster or similar and pray that the bolts will come lose. Is there space above the captive nuts to introduce hardware store nuts should the captive nuts don't want to release the hold on the bolts? Again, apologies for not remembering if there are any wiggle room in that area.

I've had couple of instances where the captive nuts were corroded and I removed them then replaced them with regular nuts. But, I had the room to make this happen, which isn't always the case.

How to knock out captive nuts - simply use a hammer and a dull punch to knock them out. They have tiny amount of welds so they're easily knocked out of their perches.

HTH.
Bending lines isn't too difficult with NiCopp lines and it's significantly cheaper, so I don't mind bending it myself.

Yes, they do bolt into some welded nuts inside the frame as I've read on the sticky about replacing them. And there may be some space to possibly get a nut in or as I posted above, a user ended up using rivnuts. I'm definitely soaking it in PB plaster for several days before trying to remove it.

Rivnuts are a great option if space is too tight for a regular hex nut. I've used them for adding a second fuel tank on my Landcruiser. Please use actual Rivnuts and not nutserts.

I used the tool below for my 3/8" x 16 Rivnuts and here's the link below: C722 / C845

I wouldn't use these types of nutserts because they may not heavy duty enough but I've used on other applications.
