I had a TR and it was open like you state. Just wondering though, I now have a Vintage and it has the removable panel underneath that Danny mentions. I was thinking about moving my fuel pump filter assembly. Right now its located in the underside close to the beam behind the removable panel. I was considering moving it to the front luggage compartment. That way it would be easy to get at should a wire come off or anything else need working on.

Al, it wouldn't be too hard to fab one up. My old panel was destroyed in the crash of the old car. But I did retain the aluminum floor of the old car. If you give me rough dimensions I could cut a piece.

I've never had a connector come off the pump. But I use Würth crimp connectors.

Rudy, I'm not a fan of fuel pump in the trunk or passenger compartment.

I figured you'd say that, I kind of agree thats why I haven't moved it yet. It would be nice to have it more accessable as in the front trunk in case it needed service while on the road happened to me once. Couldn't get at it on the road so had to get myself towed home. after that I thought it would be nice if I carried a spare and had it located someplace where it could be serviced when out on the road.

Quick follow up to this thread. I did take the pump off and threaded the wire posts with a 10-32 die. I ran a ring end wire to the posts and now have a secure wire connector using 10-32 nuts.
