Drain the tank first....other than that, it's pretty straightforward!

1 - Disconnect Battery
2 - Drain tank
3 - Disconnect lines going to fuel pump assy. (Accessible from under the passenger's side right infront of rear tire)
4 - Disconnect electrical connection to fuel pump assy.
5 - prop up gas tank
6 - remove two straps holding the gas tank in. Single bolt for each strap.
7 - Lower tank carefully enough to reach around and remove the filler neck.

Install it in reverse direction.

Yah you can get away with that in GA but not here in MI to much salt in the winter. unless it is a summercar only.
