DIY Fuel system mounts

I'm looking for ideas and places to mount my fuel system. I know the frame rail on the driver's side, I'm just seeing what everyone else has done. I'm also looking for designs of mounting systems people have used. My filter bases are a side mount, instead of the top mount styles. Any ideas would be appreciated, and pictures would be awesome. Thanks for any help.

Mine are mounted on the frame rail using existing holes on the frame rail. I don't have a pic, but it was super easy. I'll eventually build a bracket and reroute my plumbing to tuck the filters up a little higher.

Did you mount it so your filter and everything were horizontal? Since my filter bases mount on the side. I'm thinking I can just use a flat piece of steel to mount it to.

There mounted vertical. Just spin off and straight down. Idk about mounting them horizontal, could be messy when you change them. That's liquid gold that k don't like seeing on the ground.

Here are a few Pics of mine.

The filter housing is from NAPA. With a 3 micron NAPA filter. I have used it as my "T" for my fuel feed to the heads for my RR system. Temporary mounting place on the AFE air box. However it will probably be one of those not so temporary temporary fixes. It works for right now. But eventually it will be on the frame with the pump moved back closer to the tank for more room.

My fuel pressure regulator is mounted to an old 360 piston I had laying around. I was really into rat rod videos on youtube at the time! Im sure some of you understand.

Under the truck is my pre filter/ water sep. This will be changed out for a NAPA setup. As im having a hard time getting the standidine filters since I moved. and it always weeps a bit.
