Default Help! Picture/measurements needed

I currently have the radiator out of my 85 FC at the shop getting rebuilt. The shop wants to rework the filler neck slightly but has no reference as to the space (or lack of) above and in front of the filler neck when installed. If anyone has some pictures of the access door to the filler neck open or can take some with some measurements, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Jim

Having the cap slightly forward, making it easier to pour fluid into would be nice for sure. The down side, at least on my 1980 is it would make it harder to check the fluid level. If it is low it is impossible to tell how low by looking because there is a baffle right below the neck.

We decided to put the cap straight up and down. By doing so, they are going to extend the flange down inside and attach it to the tank body giving the tank extra support to handle expansion. Part of the problem with my radiator failure was that the internals came loose in the tank allowing the tank to swell outward, weakening the seams. Shop is doing everything they can to prevent that from happening again.
