I have been working on this car for nearly 10 years. I am not afraid to weld on sheet metal anymore. Besides I probably would not weld it. That black coating on the underside of that area will burn. Ask me how I know that.

I really don't have a choice but to try cutting it. I am guessing the opening does not need to be any larger then about 2" x 2". I can maybe use fiberglass or something similar to re-close the hole.

From looking at the images I posted earlier from the inside of the fender. I can probably bump the radiator support back a little and get about a 1/4 ". There is plenty of room for the fan on the other side of it.
