just thinking about making a false wall to use as an amp rack and also hide gas tank.
jus wondering how people have gone about installing a false wall for this situation and would love to know how they've gone about it i.e; mounting it, where to bolt/screw, issues such as rattles, having to access tank for servicing, whatever they do.
thanks in advance.

Make it as a one piece wrap-around wall if you know what i mean. So it just slides in and around the tank. Have some L plates on it and just screw it to the floor with 2 screws and to the parcel tray the same way. Should take an afternoon if that...

Cheers

Sam

Will you still be able to reach the inspection cover, shut off valve, etc ?

You could always add small hinged doors on it for easy access. Are you looking to carpet it?
