Need ideas for trunk access door

I need to fabricate a new floor (belly pan) for my trunk area. I was wondering if any of you have come up with a better idea for the access door for the black tank drain line? I would appreciate any suggestions. I located this door but in addition to it being sort of pricey it is also 12" x 12". I only have about 9" of flat area there.

Skip the door, and change the outlet like they have in the 74 models.

Thanks. Now if I can only find a '74 to look at.

I did look in the archives of Vintage Airstream. It appears that they cut a hole through the frame. Is that correct?

Yep, they cut a hole in the side of the frame.

This photo shows the black and gray hookup, but it lets you see how to solve the problem.

Thanks once again Andy. I didn't like the door to begin with.
