Ouch ! Sheet steel has a nasty habit of doing that.
Is the tank thick enough for the screws to hold and seal with a gasket or will you be bonding the pump/sender to the tank ?

Bit of history made today, after toiling in the mid day sun, I hooked a battery to the wiring, temporary lead to the fuel pump and Earth, and low and behold it fired up almost instantly 😱. To say Iím chuffed is an understatement. So now I can attach the body work proper. Move forward 👍
