Sure but I doubt you'll get the Badge holder back in.

With appropriate skills and tools that appears repairable. How does the rest of it look? Heavy rust inside? Pinholes?

It's rusty. Had the outside sandblasted. Was going to try a cleaner on the inside. The badge holder was bent weird and when I tried to bend it back I screwed this up.

I soaked the inside of mine in Metal Rescue and came back clean. Might be better to bring it to a shop and get it done right the first time and also fill in the badge holder could be the way to go. Just a thought! I also sprayed all my metal parts with Rust Converter before primer and paint. This way, i'm hoping runst will never come back again ever. Fingers' crossed!

I don't know if you do the sandblasting yourself or not, but make sure you do it with an angle, not 90 degrees.

Look what happened to this guy's tank if not fix properly. You don't want that after paying lots of $$$ to paint it.

If you're planning on lining the inside I'd be tempted to jbweld it. But that's just me, I bet a pro would silver solder it or some othe magic.

I would do a pressure test before doing anything, that would give you an indication of the overall condition of the tank.

Make the tank and badge holder clean of rust and paint and take it to a radiator shop, the older the shop the better they have epic soldering skills
