i changed my original tank straps that were metal an installed the stainless steel straps from classic ind. the original strap just hooked to the body mount over a rod looking bracket in front of the tank. well thats what i did with the new straps is hooked them over that rod an then connected the new straps in the back of the tank with new stainless bolts. this was a year ago i did this now i'm starting to wonder should the front of those straps been bolted together or do they just hook over that mount ? i'd sure hate to drop the tank in the street. did i do it right ?

Factory started bolting them in the front in 1967. Prior years just latch-on as you did. I have never heard of a tank dropping out. If everything is secure I would not worry.
