i could have sent you some tanks. i just scrapped 3 of them and i have a couple more that are in bad shape. also i come across simulair tanks in other makes that have the same fill kneck and drain. thats a good idea to send you the old tank a recieve a new one ^. if there is a way you could start making these at a affordable price, they will sell. stainless is pricey, steel works, but what about aluminum ? .

aluminum is the only thing we cant weld in the shop when my boss sold his share of the old shop and started the new one we never got a welder for alum never had the need for it seeming 90% of what we build is stainless. im going to try one more for a member and see if its worth it if so i might take on more orders. i know rust ones on here were forty to fifty bucks what would a new be worth to people
