Default Fuel tanks?

I've been asked for a price for Roadster fuel tanks in mild steel and ally. Does any body know of another company currently making them?
Would you want a new sender unit ready sealed,try and make the donnor one seal or not bother if it was for race type use?
Mild steel would currently not be a problem but will wait to see if there's any interest in ally before I invest in a TIG.
Thoughts, ideas please. Prices between 45(ish) for basic race type and 85-100(ish) for tank with new sender fitted.

Hi Talon

I would definitely be interested in hearing about tank options. Presumably these would be as per the book? Could you supply tanks with the openings ready made for the Sierra fuel level sender so we could just drop our donor one in? Also could you supply a tank with a swirl pot and internal baffles - giving us the choice of carbs while future proofing for possible BEC's later. What would be supplied in terms of 'ports' for fuel filling and tank breathers?

Cheers

Dave
