Lightbulb mounting bottle

Im having trouble on deciding were to mount my nitrous tank. I do not have any rear seats and i would like to be able to turn around and open the tank by hand when i want but i cant drill through the floor or body, when you look under the car theres no way to get to the bolt to put the nut on and the gas tank is around there. I thought about welding a bracket up that bolts to the seat brackets cuz the holes are already there.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to mount the bottle without drilling possibly, like apoxy or could i just tac weld the bottle brackets to the body for the mean time or something.

Im not really worried bout how it looks right now

Whatever you do it MUST be secure. I see so many cars with nitrous bottles half assed mounted in the rear. What happens if you get rear-ended and the valve busts off a bottlw with over 1000psi, it's going to be like a rocket inside your car. Maybe I'm way over-cautious but thats my thoughts.

Yea i agree totally man, its messed up tho if i look under my car underneith where i want to mount the bottle theres just frame and metel so i cant mount it in the middle right behind my arm rest. I came to the conclusion i need to manufacture up some type of brackets or possibly if theirs enough clearence put in self tapping screws.

I am going to mount my bottle in the rear of my car. Just get an auto bottle opener.

I use a remote opener in mine, as my bottle is well secured and also totally out of sight. ( the way I like it).. Though the remote opener is expensive, it works great and makes the bottle much easier to install..Also there should be a rubber body plug under or behind the rear seat, Very easy place to run your line, just cut an "X" in the rubber and run the line down through there. Just make sure to attach it VERY well under the car, and put it inside electrical conduit to protect it from the elements.
