Either drop the tank or cut your own hole for it if you're able to do some simple fabrication w/sheet metal.

It'll be safer to drop the tank before cutting a hatch. But initially, the tank has to come down.

looked like a real pain.would it hurt the body of the car if i made an access point not use to these kinda cars

There's no need to drop the tank before putting a door in the sheet metal, that's the whole point of doing it in the first place. Obviously just be careful to center the door over the pump. Be sure the door is sealed properly so there is no possibility of exhaust fumes to enter the cabin.

Below is what I used on a '94 after a pilot hole was made. A nibbler will also work:

THE REASON IN CUTTING THE HOLE IN THE FIRST PLACE IS SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DROP THE TANK.
