I tried that, pulled the relay and plugged in a remote start button and blew the fuse .... I tried for 20 minutes to bypass that damned relay and ran out of fusses and figured I'd better quit before I blew the whole damn ECM... I have NO IDEA how that car is wired...

Only bending light weight materials no rollbars,,just bracing for hood and radiator cradle,etc,
I don't like the butted and welded tubes ,I want the main tube 1 piece
if it collapses tubes ,I will fill them with sand then the bends will be smooth and no reduction in size,like the Good exaust tubing

Now I will have to learn where to mark the tube to get the bend in the right place to make the correct width:confused,

Good job of it.
During the seventies I worked for a Pontiac Dearer. All the rear bumper fill gas tanks sooner or later required removal because the weight of the fill nozzle would make the tank fill spout leak. I asked the repair guy (Chano)who worked at the radiator shop where we sent the tanks out for repair where he wanted the hole. Left rear bottom corner no larger than a penny. He used a copper penny as a patch. I had a tool made from a jack handle with a square tapered point. I had a clean 33 gal trash can which I'd place under the corner and WHAM!
I'd punch a drain hole in the tank! OSHA wasn't on the scene then. You just had to hope the tank wasn't completely full.
Boy! It would empty a tank quickly!

I got my son's Malibu done last weekend and drove it to a detailing shop Monday. I've always smelled gas while it was in my shop and looked around but never saw anything leaking. Tuesday on the way back, I put 9 gallons of gas in it and parked it in the shop. A couple hours later I went back out and there was a puddle of gas under the tank... I could see it was coming from the top and after reading about leaking fuel pump o-rings, resigned myself to removing the tank today to see what I could do about that. It was NOT fun getting the gas back out. It used to be, I would depressurize the system and then remove the line at the filter, stick a hose on the line and install the fuse and pump the gas into a container. NOT this car, there is NO inline filter...the only filter is in the tank. Even after, supposedly" relieving the pressure, I got a gas bath when I released the connector from the tank line to frame line. Once I got cleaned up from that and found a hose big enough to go over the connector and into the gas can, I re-installed the fuse and hit the key. The pump would run for a couple seconds and shut off because there is a sensor that detects the line pressure and if it doesn't, shuts off the pump for safety. I turned the key on and off over 2 HUNDRED times to get 8 gallons of gas out...
After the usual fight with strap bolts that aren't very accessible, and dropping the exhaust, I got the tank on the floor and there it was....a rodent nest on top of the tank and a chew hole thru the fuel line right in a bend...





I looked on-line for a repair method, rather than spending $500+ for a new fuel pump with attached line and came up with this little jewel from O'Reillys for $14..



First thing I had to do was heat the tube and get a 90° bend. NOT easy, it wanted to kink and I had to hold the thing bent and squeezed to prevent kinking while it was DANGED HOT. You can see my finger prints in the soft areas... I was wishing I had a set of bending springs for brake lines today...



I had to cut the nipple down on the short run to keep it on track but I got it together and it doesn't leak. The car starts much faster now too, as it doesn't bleed off the pressure in the fuel line while sitting.

It is a little late now,,but you can take a cheapo fuse holder and fuse,unplug the fuel pump relay and use the fuse for a jumper ,it will empty the tank without stopping
