My local radiator shop plasma cut an 18" X 18" hole in the top of my 68 AMX tank, sandblasted the interior, TIG welded the top piece back on and used RedKote sealer inside after welding/testing. They drilled a 1/4"drain hole in a corner to drain the sealer, then soldered a copper penny over the hole. The welding doesn't show, it allowed complete access to the interior of the tank and it doesn't leak. Also a non-vented tank. This exercise wasnt't cheap, but neither are any of the alternatives and I kept my original tank with the correctly aligned filler neck. I believe my radiator guy's last words to me were, "DON'T BRING ME ANY MORE OF THOSE!"

You may want to give RCI Racing a call, in the past they have built me all kinds of odd shaped tanks. The most recent one was for a custom jeep that held 21 gallons, had all kinds of bends in it, and it was only $220 plus shipping.
