Hi all,

I have gone in through the inspection cover on my fuel tank to clean it out before, but there is a large baffle between the inspection port and the fuel pick up. This has prevented me from truly cleaning the deepest part of the tank so far. How have others dealt with this? Cut a new inspection port on the other side of the baffle?
