Gas Tank Help

I need some instruction on how to properly remove the fuel tank. I obviously know about the 3 main tank bolts. What all do I need detach before i am able to fully remove it. Also how do I properly remove the fuel lines? they are new and I dont want to damage them. Pictures are always helpful.

There is a wiring harness under the tank that connects near where the tank and seat meet.

Aside from that, the bolts, and the fuel/carb lines, there is nothing else holding it on. As for removing the fuel lines, I just pinch the rubber an inch or 2 below the petcock and pull slowly but firmly. They should just slip right off.
