That's cool. I'm not sure what kind of clearance you have around the TC drain and fill plugs but for mine I needed to cut down and allen wrench, fit it on the plug and then turn it a tiny bit at a time with an open ended wrench. There is a cross member in the way. It doesn't look like there is room to do it but it works no problem and much easier than taking out the cross member.

My neighbor has a nice shop with a couple car lifts so doing maintenance is pretty easy for me. Good luck and have fun!
