Default Petrol Tank

Hi, I am in the process of restoring a 1944 Lister B type engine which is in a bit of a state, I have just been removing the rust from the petrol tank which is the rectangular one that clamps on to the trolley frame and in one corner it now looks like a Swiss cheese, has anybody got a tank they want to sell or knows where I could get another one or one made, any help will be gratefully received.
Thank, Bernard.
