I think these reply’s are right on the mark. I am in the same boat on my 69 right now.

I chose to order a SPECTRA tank from a local vendor and installed it in my other car, a 68. It looks really good, better than the OER painted version. Fit well and appears to be ‘SAME’ as orig, but I really did not study all the curves, bends, folds, indents, welds and on and on,,,I was basically happy.
The option for a NOS replacement item is nice, at double the cost and dependant on condition and if you are a NOS or nothing kind of restorer.

I even called my local plater to ask about options for strip-&-plate ideas for an old tank,,,turns out to be a poor choice $ wise, safety & correctness.

Exactly ----

I pulled my clips off of my pace car and they were so heavily coated in body shop undercoating gunk that when placed in a mild  (Solvent 140) tank the grime came off exposing the tranlucent Blue dye coloring..Nothing like the clips in the left side of the pictures above.
Ultimatly what I did was include the clips in my plating batch (Bright Zinc) and hung them from a wire and mist sprayed them with Dykem Blue layout Blue,,,they look very close to as found.

I like the "Quanta" Made in Canada tank I got for my 68, as I did not care for the painted OER version I saw at swap meets.

Most opt for a replacment tank vice restoring the OLD tank, my thinking was after all the years of abuse, dents, undercoating, corrosion, paint overspray, etc the efforts to restore, (obtaining real plating vice spray painting the exterior) and cleaning & sealing the interior of the tank was not worth the efforts when compared to the current quality avail and offered by the Quanta tank.
The appearance of the 67-68 tank is great.

I have heard that with the 69 tanks (Brand unknown) can have filler neck, position-angle issues?

Tricky, slippery slope with this topic.
I have seen their products come out BOTH perfect and a disaster (COLOR & FONT) with a poor outcome after both sides many attempts to resolve. (Long story)

Offcialy,, they make great Garage art plates.
