Fuel Tank Removal

Hi Guys,
I want to remove the GAS TANK in a 1976 450SL.
BESIDES the 4 side bolts what else needs removal to get the tank out?
I have separated the braided gas line from the PUMP but it IS still threaded to the flange part of the tank. This flange doesnt appear to have to be removed----DOES IT?

Are there MORE gas tank securing bolts that have to be accessed from inside the car from the convertible top area?

PLEASE answer these 3 questions & add any other information to give me the best experience here.
Thanks in advance,
Gary
