Have a local guy make these up.  Shooting for a $130-150 price tag.  LMK if you are interested.

EDIT:  This is a stock replacement PS tank for a B-body LT1 car.  It will have an attachment that will be a direct fit into your factory mount.

Power steering tanks. So not ready yet to sell, but getting idea's of who might be interested in these.
Our tanks are getting old and I have had several folks have them crack. This would allow a direct replacement and can be polished, powdercoated, painted, etc. They will initially offered as a group purchase raw or possibly polished if there is the interest. This is a first tank and will have a vent hole and dipstick just as the factory one does. They will also drop into the factory bracket. I will post more when I have one completed and on my car.
Please let me know if you are interested.

Not sure of a final price just yet but shooting for $130-150 raw.



9/5/17 update - I am working with my welder/fabricator.  It looks like we are going to add baffles and change around how the return line comes into the tank to reduce foaming issues.  Working on this in our free time so please be patients.  Hoping this does not increase our original target price, but it must work well not just look good.  More to come.

11/21/17 IT WORKS!!! - I am pretty confident that these will not have any issues. Worst case the cap might weep a little from the vent hole in a road racing or autocross events.
The next batch I am going to have made will be a batch of 15 tanks. Between the holidays, me moving to another state and the fabricator working nights and weekends on these it is likely to be January 15-30 before they would ship. I have to sell them first come first serve but offered first to those who showed the first interest early on when I posted, on this and other pages/sites. I am asking for prepayment on these tanks due to the cost and size of this order. If you do not know me you may not feel comfortable doing this, I fully understand. You will likely get a tank but it may take a while before I have any "stock" to sell. The pricing is as follows $175 Plus $26 shipping and PayPal fees.
Please PM me if you would like to buy a tank. I will let those who are willing to pre-pay know as I confirm and give them my PayPal address.
If you do not get in on the first run there will be more. Once the initial rush calms down I am sure we can keep some un-built tanks in inventory for one off orders. Likely that will be mid-late 2018.
