    the best way is to get a metal frame for it and bolt it to the floor or bulkhead.

    or

    bolt timbers 2inchx3inch all around the bottom edges to stop it sliding and then use 4x 5 tonn rachet straps to hold it down.

    Also could always find a local fabricator to find out cost to make a metal bespoke frame for you.

    Mate nice set up. I'd get it strapped down properly or use a metal frame. You don't want a full tank going through into your cabin if you have a crash.

    Ive only got one of the big ratchet straps across the middle of the tank it doesn't move at all but if i was to have a high speed crash would be fooked ! Its just getting the spare cash to get the frame there really expensive, i know safety comes first though
