After cleaning the rust off the tank bottom and tank support plate, paint both with epoxy primer, two coats. Then just use an old bicycle inner tube, split open, as mentioned by others do not make it continuous but leave gaps between the pieces for water/moisture to drain out. I support the bottom of the tank four short segments of inner tube.

With what you found in the propane bottle area will be nothing to what you fine in side the battery box.

I keep old inner tubes from bicycles that I repair. find one that you can slip over the spacer on bottom. if you cant find the exact fit double it over. so like a 16" tube will become a 8" when doubled. like a big rubber band.
