MRL 1/2" tape in LA (NOT WTB)

Hi, first post here, hope this is the best category...

I am located in LA and I am trying to find an MRL 1/2" tape, specifically MRL 31J329 or Fostex model 9200, for the Fostex B-16. I'm doing a session Wednesday and the client wants to use his machine. It hasn't been used since he got it from someone else. I put a reel up and tested it, all channels record and playback without any audible weirdness (for now...!) but I want to give it as good an alignment as this machine can get.

As it is Sunday, and Superbowl at that, I can't get ahold of any rental companies or Ametron or anything. And as it is not my machine (and could have other issues I haven't found yet) I am not looking to spend $200 on a new tape if I can avoid it. My hope is that someone in LA would be willing to rent or lend the tape for 2 days Wednesday and Thursday. And if said person has done this a lot, maybe they could come to the studio Wednesday and "consult" in the alignment process.
