Leaky Wagoneer coolant expansion tank fix

I had bought a new coolant expansion tank a few years ago. Sadly the new tank started leaking after a short time. I did try to plastic weld the leak, but that repair did not hold, so I decided to use a tank from another car.
This is the old tank with several repairs. 
 This is the tank from an Austin Maestro. Even though the austin is a smaller car, the tank is larger .
I made a bracket, so I could use the Jeep strap to fit the new tank and fitted some new hoses. Pressure tested the system and made a successful test run.
