Why bother jacking or removing the panels? So that I can change my oil filter for one.Why bother with replacement panels or jacking the car up?
I posted this elsewhere but in case you haven't seen it...
You can buy a 14mm x1.5 to -6an adapter and use a -6an hose and run it to the outer side of the car behind the front left wheel well. There's also a barbed adapter available that will fit the pan thread to a dash 6 hose so you don't have to use a second female hose end. I had all these parts except for the pan adapter.
Put a female/barbed hose end at the outer end with a -6 cap. I drilled two small holes for a tyrap to keep it in place. For extra insurance, I safety wired a wrap around the hose for each barbed fitting. The hose easily routes under the cross member to the outed edge of the panel. (I put some sticky back foam at any place there could be chaffing) Leave a little extra hose (3-4") to pull out from the panel and over a drain pan. You'll only have to jack the car up once to install it.

The shot above had the hose routed over the crossmember but I changed it to go under, as below.

This whole thing shouldn't cost over $40 or so in parts. Next time you drain the oil... snip the tyrap, pull the hose out over a pan and remove the cap. That end of the panel hung down a bit so I drilled a hole in the two panels and put in one of those plastic spreader plugs to hold them together.
Nice workaround by using a hose. Very creative.
