because I can't get the stock one out! I lowered both gas tank mounts/bands, removed the J&M UCA, now the stock mount will not come out. No matter how I try to fanagle it the 18mm bolt housing will not come out of that hole under the back seat. What trick am I missing?

If you have not done it already, you need to loosen ( if not remove) the convertible structure bracing that keeps the gas tank from lowering out of the way so that the bolt sleeve clears the body....

Exactly! Same problem I faced trying to replace the one in my GT convertible - the thing just will not come out without practically dropping the tank. If you do decide to drop the subframe/gas tank bracing remember to make sure you have enough slack in the fuel pump lines on top before you start to drop the tank.
