Buickboy yeah its really not a big deal, just a cut followed by welding the aluminum plate on. measuring is the most important part. Not $200 worth of work like some companies make it out to be

Buickboy do a google search or ask around for a machine shop/ fab shop/ custom place.

transfer that measurement to the cossie/knockoff and make a line.

tell the fab shop to cut the extra off and weld a flat piece on there


easy as pie and when i had it done it cost me $60. im sure you could find someone to do it cheaper or even take measurements if you arent confident. Just find a fabricator

Cossie or knockoff that needs to be moddit to fit around the p/s tank, which is mounted up on the pump. You could back date your car to the pre '08 tank & hoses that bolt on the fire wall.
