    I used an air cut-off tool. Uses like, 3" wheels. You don't want to go deep at all...

    This is why I took the 3 hrs to drop the tank.. It's yours to do how you like but now you've got a bunch of swiss cheese to patch then still rust too imho.. Good luck..

    Yes your tank is black plastic.. But I'm getting the feeling you may have cut the wrong area of the tunnel.. Just a hunch is all... If you've cut the slanted or angled part that goes down towards the well.....=......oooops!... Good luck man..
