Inline Fuel Pumps

i'm looking to add an inline fuel pump... where are they usually installed? Is it best to have it closest to the fuel tank/cell or does it matter?

I got a Bosch 044 mounted on the underside on the down slope. It pumps fuel from an ATL cell and is done with braided lines. The pump can be accessed easily by pulling the driver rear tire off. I though about mounting the pump inside the car under the aluminum bulkhead that covers the cell but since it is not watertight, if a leak occured I'd rather the pump be letting it go outside the car.
