      Fuel pump access panel...

      I'm getting ready to throw my Rick's Tanks Restomod tank into my '73 Camaro. As I was planning this out, I was thinking about how great it would be if I had quick access to the fuel pump after installation and how brilliant of idea I had of making some sort of access panel. A quick Google search revealed that my brilliance was short lived as I found several companies already making them.

      Do I just go with the Detroit Speed Fuel Pump Access Panel Kit? I feel like 9"x9" is kinda small, but maybe not? Someone else's kit I should be looking at? Is there anything else I should be taking into consideration for this?

      Thanks.

      I use the DSE on all of my builds. If you position it right there is adequate access for the fuel pump.

      Sweet. It's been working for you? The 9x9 opening is enough room there to service what you'd like?

      Alright, well that answers that question then. I'll go grab the DSE kit.

      I thought the 9x9 was too small so I bought this one:
      Allstar Performance ALL18543 Access Panel Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YJEYB6W...R6QATXVV0X46P7

      It’s large enough that I can access everything from the trunk including sender and all wiring plus obviously get the pump in and out.



      If you look at my build, page 7 post 136 you can kinda see it but it’s covered by insulation.

      17.5x17.5... wow, that's huge. I'm sure servicing anything under there is easy. My only worry is if it's too big? Am I compromising structure at that point? I'm guessing not, but I'd want to hear your thoughts anyway.

      It’s actually 10x14 the package dimensions are prolly 17x17. I don’t think your sacrificing anything structural. Your putting in a frame that will be screwed and seam sealed. I think it’ll be just as strong.

      That's a good find, that would even work well for servicing my 6x9 fuel module I bet.
