Weld tomos step through help...

So i was grinding on the seam to make clearance for my intake (which turns out I didn't even need to do in the first place).

I got overzealous and went a little too far, now I have a drippy leak.

the leak is coming from the seam itself and I can see the exact spot.

Would I be able to hit that hold with a shitty mig welder?

or is this a job where I'll have to pay somebody to tig it to fill in that hole?

thanks

Brazing would work too. The problem being you might have a hard time finding someone to weld on something that was filled with fuel recently, unless they specialize in that sort of thing.

I can dump the tank and let it air dry a few days.

That is no biggie.

I was just making sure I could mig this... I have a few friends with crappy mig welders so yeah.

run the exhaust from your car thru the gas tank after you air dry it, it should put enough Co2 in there to weld safely.

The leak is small enough to where I cam up with this current plan...

instant gas tank repair on outside to plug leak.

caswell inside of tank (could of used it anyway).

that should fill this little leak.

I did this recently on a leaky tank and it worked just fine

That is the exact same thing I just posted about :)

the difference is, I normally seal all my tanks with caswell.

I already have the instant gas tank fix (some sort of putty/epoxy) drying on the outside.

I'll caswell it in a few days and then should be good to go.

Thanks for the verification!
