Dimensions for Blank Tank Holder Box sought

Greeting Gang and Good Morning!

I am fabricating from scratch and with no previously existing pattern, the holding box that surrounds the Black Tank on a 1966 Overlander. This is the configuration in which there is no grey tank, but a single tank under the rear bathroom.

I'd like to focus discussion on the task of the fabrication on the box and not on grey tank issues, please.

My Question: has anyone made drawings of this holding box that they would care to share? Traditionally they were steel sheet metal. I have the tank and the Styrofoam platform that it rests on. Any advise on better material choices, dimensions, &c. are deeply appreciated.

Thank in advance and Happy Camping!

68 overlander measurements

I just measured the one I had made for my 68 overlander.
It is 24.75" x 51" x 7.5" h with .25" lip.
I had a air conditioning duct man duplicate the original out of galvanized duct material.
Hope this helps.
Pat
