Any recommendations for a company that restores fuel tanks.  Mine is rusty on the inside and needs redone.  Thanks in advance.

I like the idea to fill with rock and strap to a tractor wheel or a portable cncrete mixer barrel. To the moment I have done 4 steel truck tanks and the most thing I figured out of that the job is difficult and expensive. If you don't worry about the look of the weld seams or they allow by style reskin it with new sheet metal. I did two of them such way. Another (the 1st) pair was rocked and rolled what took alot of efforts including welding the holes which took their place after cleaning the rust and the result didn't seem perfect. So no I would go another path cutting a big hole in the back side and sandblasting the inside through. Than welding it back after.
