LP Regulator Position

Need some help or advise everyone!
My new Worthington tanks came in and are in the process of being polished. Almost halfway done with one of them and then onto the next. Removed the tank tray to grind, prime and repaint and need to reposition it so that the tanks don't hit the AS. Making a new bracket and moving the tray forward 2.25". Now for the question. Originally the regulator was in front of the tanks. What I would like to do since I will not be covering the tanks with the old cover is to position the tanks so that the regulator is in the back of the tanks, meaning between the tanks and the AS. This would look better since you would basically be seeing only the tanks and it would protect the regulator from road debris but I don't remember ever seeing it set up this way! Can this be done and if not why?

Rick

Ours is. We can then look through the front window to see if the regulator has changed from one tank to the next.
Here is a pic of our old tanks showing the regulator behind the tanks:

Clever! I am stealing that idea for sure!
