Lashing down an auxillary fuel tank
I'm about to leave on an overland trip in my Hilux pick-up; one of the last things I need to do is lash down a fueel tank I procured from the local HGV breakers. It's a DAF lorry tank, must be about 160-180 litres. It's going just behind the cab in the load area, and needs to be secured frmly to the deck of the load area.
Any recommendations for how to do this?
On page 138 of Sahara Overland II is an illustration of a Range Rover with a 200 litre oil drum, secured with what look to be ratchet straps. Do you think these would be strong enough?
Are there any metal-strap lashing systems that anyone knows of?
I've seen 500kg ratchet straps, but the question is what to attach these straps to - does anyone know of some good, heavy-duty lashing points?
Luckily, the underside of the load area is easily accessiible in the Hilux, so I can either screw fittings in, or, preferably, use bolts.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
