Got the hole cut but had to cut an additional area to get to the fuel line fittings which required removing the back seat and sound deadener. Still the right way to do it on this car but unless yours is crusted over underneath with 15 years of red clay and lime dust from the Midwest back roads and everthing rusted up like mine do yourself a favor and drop the tank. I got the top of the fuel line/sender plate cleaned off and it is almost solid rust, I don't think the fuel lines coming out of the tank are going to survive the removal but until I get the right size line wrenches I won't know, all the friggin' line wrenches I have and none were the right size.......... I'm gettin a new(er) assembly anyway, if I don't they are guaranteed to break. So, it works but I don't recommend it.
