    I really don't see how that part of the body is providing any critical structural support of the car. Its directly in the center, and its really nothing more than sheet metal. Common sense says that if there was any real force acting upon that section, it would bent and twist up like paper anyway. So I really don't see it being a problem.

    Either way works, the trap door just makes servicing the pump much easier.

    In the time it would take to cut a nice clean proper hole, seal the metal so it won't rust (ie clean , prime and paint) then mount the cover, you could have the tank out and replaced in the same time.

    Just my 02 cents and the will to do things the right way.
