How do you remove gas tank?

OK. I'm into the fuel system work and want to take out my tank. The previous owner had a thin piece of metal strap across the bottom of the tank. I cut it and fully expected the tank to drop down a bit. It didn't. I've got the fuel and vent lines disconnected. Do I need to disconnect the wiring before dropping the tank? Appreciate any help and guidance, diagrams, writing directions with pictures, youtube videos, napkin with a diagram, etc :D
I don't want to start prying on this thing and do more damage than good.

dont forget to mention that the straps you got from me are STAINLESS steel!
ZekesGarage, you need to fix it or find a good used one.
72SSWagon, it is like a strap of sheet metal and this bolt that looks like a number "7" is hooked thru the strap and the bolt part of the hook is held to the tank strap with a nut.
it is a pretty specialized bolt. maybesomeone has one? i know i do but finding it is another story.
