mounting toilet flange on black tank

so ive been googling for over a hour and cant seen to get my answer. i am doing a custom wet bath in my safari. only cause we normaly stay where there are baths and we would prob only use the as bathroom 1 time a year. anyway ive got everythign planed and mapped out and found a black tank that will fit the space i need. it has no holes drilled in the top for the vent or toilet. it is the plastic style tank not fiberglass. my question is who can plastic weld ( or whtever its called) the flange on the tank for the toilet or can this be done by me with some epoxies?

If it's ABS plastic you could do it yourself.

Let your fingers do the walking...

We found a local company that makes tanks (fancier than ours) and they put the fittings in the tank for me. We just marked the tank where we wanted them and they did it. As I recall, it was about $20 including the flange....and I could watch!

They basically cut the hole with a hole saw, then put the fitting on the drill and spun it in the hole. The friction caused enough heat to fuse them together...pretty cool!

ABS you can solvent weld. White plastic you have to spin weld. Solvent weld is basically ABS shavings mixed with Acetone to make a paste. cut the hole, sit the flange in, apply the paste, let dry.
