Tank looks to be in pretty good condition outside, so call around, find a shop that boils them out, get it sealed  or get a kit to seal it yourself, like Eastwood. Nice project, good job on that carb.

SOAK IT IN MOLASSES FOR STARTERS! Once she is cleaned up, then you can spray it with zinc coating or get it zinc coated.

Look up the molasses stuff, here, or on the net, molasses for cleaning. It will get rid of all the rust and look very good. Steve knows about it.

VINEGAR . Let it soak in it for about ten minues, check on it. She will turn beautiful copper color in no time, depending on how bad it really is. I think I have soaked some copper objects about 15 minutes and look brand new, and no, no kidding on the copper cleaning with vinegar.

Oh yeah. . . Lemmon juice brings a carb back to it's original color.  But lemon juice is not good for grease.

I used acetone to clean out my tank.Add some crushed stone as an agitiator.
Acetone evaorates,so it cannot soak in the tank.
You have to pour it in,swich it untill all the crap is loosened off,then empty it.
Repeat if needed,then flush with water.
Let tank dry.
i do recommend using the eastwood tank sealer for good measure.
BTW,bending your own brake and fuel lines is easy.Get a goodd quality tube bender and take your time replicating the original lines.
It may take some time,but much cheaper than buying pre=bent lines--if you can find them, for your car.
Hope this helps.

Actually you'll need several different benders for the lines.  Some of the fuel lines can be a bear to form.  Nrake lines are pretty easy
