have a look on youtube
and you'll find a few ways of cleaning out the tank...
may as well give it a go urself...pointless paying someone to do
the very same as you can do....
when you get that done I might be able to get it painted black
for you..

sounds mad but apple cider vinegar works at removing rust. just pour it in the tank and leave it for a few days and the rust flakes off

how many mile to the gallon will you get with that?:lbhbh:

But seriously, will that be safe with the carbs and fuel lines?
