Tank Lift Brackets

I picked up some 1/8" x 3/4" steel and four rubber grommets to make some tank lift brackets.

I cut two pieces using my cutting wheel.

Then I clamped them together and marked where the holes would go, exactly 2 inches apart.

I had to drill them just a little bigger so the grommets would fit.  The tank bolt is a 5/16" bolt but I had to drill a 7/16" hole.  The grommet is very snug and the bolt (which you can see to the right) fits perfectly.

I started to round off the corners.

Here the rounding is complete.

Then I cleaned up the steel and primed it to be painted later.  I'll add the grommets after that.
