Anything that I might need to be aware of in removing the fuel tank, other than connections and straps?

Should be fairly easy although before removing the nuts I would recommend dosing the two T bolts at the rear with penetrating oil a day or so prior to the attempt. Tank is kind of bulky and heavy so might be good to have something close able to support it when you let it down far enough to disconnect the sender wire. If your car is one with a Wade connector in the fuel sender wire where it joins the body loom in the trunk you can disconnect there and feed the short length down thru the grommeted hole near the L tail light assy and let the tank down the entire way..
