D90 aux tank anyone?

I have an unmounted 9 gal aux gas tank that was made "back in the day" possibly by RA?
I also have the instructions, fuel pump, filler neck, template where to cut and install the side filler area, as well as the part itself.
The only issue is these were made from HD steel and of course rust.
It does not hang any lower than the frame (the 13 gal one they made did) and mounts under the passenger side.

I am wondering if anyone here is a fabricator and can make these out of HD alum or alloy?
I can provide the parts, and you can duplicate them and offer them to fellow board members.

I did get a local quote to have just the tank made by a local top welding shop, and they wanted almost $600, but I was just a stranger off the street so Im sure someone can make these for much less.

If anyone is interested or just knows who can duplicate this for me please PM or email me

Could you PDF the instructions and post them up here, please? I have the same one but no instructions.
