    Drilling rear plate on xpl question....

    I want to drill thru the rear plate on my xpl for a water supply. I bought the fitting below, and want to install it to the right of the speedo wire in picture below. My question is, the fitting i got will only work if the hole i drill is only 1/2" thick. Does anyone know how thick that spot will be including the plate? Any way to tell?

    I wouldn't drill through the plate.. If you HAVE to drill a new hole, do it on the side wall by the waterbox (opp of the exhaust outlet). You can even drill the hole on the outlet side, but choose carefully, and not too close to the exist outlet location.
