Mounting positions for Sub Box?

I recently bought myself a sub in a prefabbed box, but i want to mount it somewhere to stop it swimming around in my boot!

I drive an NL fairlane. (EL)

I was thinking about getting some mount 'L' brackets and getting some self tapper screws. But im curious, is it safe to drive a self tapper screw into the boot floor? (In the area right behind the backseat)

Or will this probably hit something such as the fuel tank?

Spose my question could be; just how far down is the fuel tank below the boot floor?

You have most likley done it by now but if you don't want to drill into steel just glue down some timber blocks 25mm/25mm with silastic or ureathane and screw the box to the blocks.Just make sure your screws are not to long and go thru the blocks to the steel of the car.
