    When you go looking for air tanks take a magnet with you. Some of the Peterbuilts have aluminum air tanks. they look good when polished but may be painted on the truck.

    Another good source is trucking companys that have their own repair shops (logging companys are a good source since the log trucks take a beating). A lot of times there will be old parts trucks in their yards with air tanks. Most of the time the tanks never get touched, it's usually the drive train that is striped off the old trucks.

    I got lucky today and scored a set of tanks from a Freightliner. And the York with all the mounting brackets.
    Off a rig at the shop that is going to the salvage yard after the engine is removed and put into another rig.

    When you get the tanks grab the mounts too. The air tanks on my Pete are long pieces of chanel and big "U" bolts to hold the tank to them. That would give you a starting point for your mounts.
