I suppose I should just quit trying to get somebody else to try it for me.

I can't remember where I saw it (might have been e-bay), but I did see a plastic tank for a 6th gen Accord for sale. My only problem was I already had a new steel tank (in storage for 3 or 4 months), so I was going to use it. If you really think about it, a new steel replacement tank isn't that bad of a way to go, when you think about the original steel tank going 18+ years before having a flange rust thru problem. I mean I could buy a new tank from Rock Auto (with shipping) for less than I could buy a used tank on e-bay, that still needed to be shipped (and nobody was offering free shipping either). I figure if I can get 10 to 15 years out of it, I'll be in good shape, and maybe a plastic tank will be offered by then for cheap. This of course means hoping the rusty Accord is still around in 10 to 15 years. I'll probably do my wife's car before I need to replace the 99 tank again, and it's already 17 years old.

A buddy of mine just replaced the tank w/sending unit and pump, fuel lines, and tank straps on his wife's 95 S-10 Blazer. He had about 350 into it plus his time. Most of the parts were genuine GM too, that he got thru Rock Auto. He was originally in there to replace the fuel lines, but decided to do it all.
