Defender plastic tank insulation pads location?

I am installing a plastic tank on a new frame, and received the tank and all hardware from RN. Included were 4 insulation pads MXC5714. About 2" in diameter and 3/4"thick. I see them on the parts diagram, but have no idea where they go. I have another chassis that has a factory plastic tank and can't locate it on that one either. Anyone know where these go?

This is on a 110. Micro Cat says 2 for a 90, 4 on a 110 out 130. They are also probably a little over 3" in diameter(not 2"). There is a 3/8" hole in the center and adhesive on one side.

If I recall correctly, my Td5 plastic tank had 4 round areas, on the top of the tank, where these thing were glued

I went back and looked and there aren't any such spots on this fuel tank. I guess I'll have to wait and call RN on Monday

seem to remember that these went on the sides of the tank, between the tank and the chassis to snug up the fit.

Rovers North says they think they go on the bottom.(They weren't very convincing). I'll look on the sides again as well. Looking at the one factory plastic tank I have access to, I can't really see how they'd be on the bottom, unless they've been completely flattened.

I've had my tank off several times.
Those pads go on the sides where the tank would bump the chassis on the sides.
They get glued on the sides of the tank.
