[Healeys] Fuel Tank sealers

I'm chiming in real late on this one (finally getting time to reading old
emails). A few years back I had to line a gas tank from a Series 1 XJ6
(unobtanium new). I used a POR-15 fuel tank sealer kit and was very pleased
with the result. Using the degreaser and metal prep is a must.
If the pick-up tube/filter in the Healey tank is non-removable, this option
would be a non-starter.
However, based on Jean's reply, I agree a new tank would be the way to go.

Johns recent comment about his use of sealers on a fuel tank which lasted 15
years. 25 years ago when I bought my BJ8, I had mine sealed inside and out
with an epoxy by a well known local specialist Al's Radiator in the western
suburbs of Chicago. I called them because of heavy rust plugging the full
pump and carb filter. They were surprised it lasted that long and
recommended having it done again. They are now a part of a rather expensive
franchise program which has dealers in Florida. However, I would like to
flush and seal myself. Has the members of the list have any suggestions?
The tank does not leak and is original to the vehicle.
