CyborgGT is cool... so far.
Question

Here's mine, with the new pump in. It was a bit tight, but as I neglected to tighten down the lines before testing, a bit of fuel sprayed errrrvrywhere and now I don't mind waiting a while to make it a bit bigger/easier for the next time. Cover plate coming soon...ish.

cut mine open today. just used tin snips and cut a rectangle. i tried to keep it as one piece as possible so that i could attach a hinge and mending plate to keep it down. looks like kind of a hack job right now because it got dark and i was trying to rush. tomorrow i'm going to grab some sort of rubber trim and put it all around the edge to keep it sealed.

i'll grab pics tomorrow once it's done.

i don't imagine it being hard but my car is currently parked in a rather busy street and can't get it started to move it lol


update on my fuel pump situation:
went to start my car this morning and NOTHING. went ahead and ordered a 190lph walbro. so, i started ripping everything apart again to get my old pump out. two of the nuts on the lid thinger ended up getting stripped because they were so corroded had to buy a nut extractor and spend far too long on just those two nuts. now to play the waiting game for this new pump to arrive....

Interesting DIY. I always do like to say that "it isn't yours 'till you've drilled some holes in it."

I would be concerned that if there were any fuel vapors above in that area with the cutoff wheel--bye bye.

Also (just a question)--never dropped a tank before, but can't you just use a floor jack to lower it and press it back up?

Also, if you ever have severely rusted bolts, try CRC Freeze-off. Normally PB Blast is my tool of choice, sometimes spraying it on fasteners 2x a day for several days before a job, there but for a really really bad bolt I use my can of CRC Freeze-Off. It's messier (drips all over the place because you have to spray it on the fastener for like 15 seconds at a time) but gets those really hard jobs done faster than the PB Blast.

I'd make the hole just a little bigger....because the pump comes out at an angle ..so more clearance is best. Make the hole bigger on the side of the angle.

Nice DIY!

Good idea, I would do as a couple have suggested and use a cover plate from a Civic or any other car that has an access panel to the fuel pump. Granted it has to fit the limited space on the CB but im sure something is out there that is available. You can also use the hole in the donor vehicle as a template and if your really pimp, cut out the access hole and weld it in place on your CB.....would DEFINATLY drop the tank for this....and this is of course taking this mod to the extreme but would be the cleanest option out there! EIther way, nice thing about using an OEM access panel is that it will look and function like OEM and would actually give some of that space back some of its structural integrity though I doubt cutting this small hole would ever be noticed unless the car was being raced or something similar.

Just did this. Il post pictures later. If you look at above pictures youl notice a steel line of some kind on the seat side of the hole. Theres a bolt holding some other line together under it. The first steel line makes it very difficult to do this mod and get to the lower bolt. so I just cut the above bracket away and made it easier.

Does anyone have pictures of this done on a CB9 wagon? It would be helpful to see where the pump access opening should go, as obviously the contours of the wagon's floor is somewhat different than the sedan.

Never mind; I guess it's not really that much different than the sedan:
