Well, it is not exactly like an origional, but it will fit in the same place and will probably withstand a nuclear blast. And unlike the origional one, the bottom is not rusted out. Built out of 1/8th sheet steel and a 1 1/4 filler neck. Will replace the PVC cap with a nice brass one as soon as I find one at the hardware store. Now I just have to coat the insides and paint the outside.
