First off, welcome to R2R. #WelcometoR2R
Might I assume you can't get it through the stand doors with the center brace? What I've had to do with other large sumps (a 75 gallon DIY sump under a six foot 180) was to first install the sump through the top of the stand, and then put the DT...
I have also cut down PVC 90s to get them to fit. Although some people do paint PVC that is exposed to their tank water (Krylon Fusion is the normal recommendation), I personally avoid paint in my tank.
