I have removed the gas tank from the turtle deck to repair a leak. The sheet metal below the sediment bulb and gas line appears to have been cut away to allow more room to access the drain and valve leaving a rather large (8x8 inch )hole. Was there ever a removable plate to partially fill that hole around the sediment bulb that would have been removable? It seems that there would have been a lot of dust coming into the car with that large of an opening in the floor. Any info would be appreciated.
My 21 coupe has the same large hole with no cover.
Thanks Jim. I am sure they are all alike.
Sorry I haven't kept in touch. My Coupe also had the large hole. One is the battery the other for the bulb.
The new floor pan I made does not have the correct rib markings in it, Fords were an "X" design, I just ran my ribs straight for ease of construction. The bondo covers the spot welds before painting
Should say the spot welds are for attaching the metal bracing and cross member channel
