Small pinhole leaks X 3 in the RT tank in the fuel pump well. Found them after having the tank repainted and noting the paint blisters at the seam. Really don't want to do a complete coating on the inside of the tank like Caswells or similar. What will be gas proof/resistant that will flow into the seam to seal it? Maybe Loctite (as per recent fuel pump rebuild thread)????

Proper clean and sanding and then 2 component material. I used JB Weld with good results.

Yes, was wondering about JB Weld. I do have some on my bench for that purpose. I'll be working inside the tank, so whatever is used will be permanently submersed in fuel.
