In that case, consider running it behind the license plate. Just go to a pick-a-part type place and find the plate bracket off of like a '70s Buick. Just a thought, because you're going to have to get creative with the tank and hoses anyways.

Jeep wranglers YJ models and some others (from at least 1988-1996 I think) also used that same type of fold down liscense plate to hide the fuel cap. Those jeeps may be easier to find and take the bracket from rather than a '70s buick. Both would suit your needs.
