Maybe I can make a mold of this space and produce a plastic tank.

I am thinking a 2 piece tank , bottom created from plastic heated and vacuumed onto a mold , then bolt on a stainless steel thin plate with filler cap.

Need more info regarding what material I must get to heat and wrap around the mold that will be strong enough to withstand meth.

I have access to shop with all the aid I need to make something like this.

This should be able to make dirt cheap + a little profit for the maker.

And happy customers.

If everybody helps out I am willing to do my part

I'd strongly suggest you consider including a liner (as with fuel cells) to prevent direct contact between the tank and the methanol to increase longevity as well as decrease the risk of spillage in the event of the tank being breached in an accident or alike.

Alternatively, a vacuum moulded ABS tank could easily be templated off the work you have already done, this would not only be cheaper, but safer in the long run. You would still be able to retain the high quality finish, the easily concealed design and the use of an earls sealing cap

And I for one would be first in queue to buy one!
