Default No weld gas tank?

I am fed up with the stock tear drop tanks!

The leaking studs are so annoying! I am thinking I just need to make my own as I will not pony up $100 for a general 5star or alike.

I am toying with the idea of two 1 qt. paint cans stacked on top of each other and then laid down on the top tube. Connected by a brass nipple in the bottom of the first and lid of the second. Then a brass bushing and plug for the fill cap.

It is by no means perfect but I need a solution! I do not have a welder and do not really want to spend more then $50.
