My end results should have been the same, back in 1990, I soldered a leaking seam on my under the seat gas tank on my 1970 cj5.

Not sure if soldering was the best way to fix it but it worked. I even soldering the pickup tube on the top of the new sending unit.

So this is a story of how not to prepare a gas tank for welding or brazing.
