Thumbs down Fabrication Ideas Needed to Cover Hole Over Sending Unit

What ideas would you have to create a hatch that would allow access through the bed of my Jeep to gain access to my sending unit when needed? I aquired a gas hatch cover designed for a Hummer that has a key lock built in. However, the need to mount this hatch cover flat on the top of the bed will allow debris to key into the lock, not allowing the key to get in to oen the hatch. Also, how can I flatten the ribs in the the bed around the hole opening so I can mate a cover to that will be in contact with the bed floor all the way around? I have attached a picture of the situation needing a cover. What ideas to you have. Thanks
