He said the nature of this RV-12 fuel filler location is it will happen again even if you are very careful and it might be worth (if I heard it correctly) considering using the old glass to shape, form, and drill store-bought lexan (?)... Now knowing that's it is structural....I guess that's not the way to go. Sorry, I've never seen what I'm talking about and just know there are those of us that have had issues and I usually fall into the other category.....and their are those that will.
