Excellent choice and in great condition too.
Thanks! It was kind of a shot in the dark. I spent a couple days looking at tanks on eBay, pestering sellers for measurements. It took a while to find a tank that looked good, was in decent shape, looked like it had enough room underneath to fit over the CX's engine hangers, and didn't cost a bunch of money. I got this tank for about $50 shipped. It's kind of rusty inside, but not too bad - it can definitely clean up.
I'll have to make some mounts for it, but I'm happy with it. I thought I was going to have to beat in the bottom of any tank I got. Now I have a decent looking tank with another gallon and a half of extra capacity compared to the original.
