Asking for a friend of mine...He did some pin hole repairs on a very old motorcycle gas tank. He was going to coat the inside with Por15 gas tank repair, so he had to solder the holes in the bottom of the tank first so that the sealer would not leak out. He used 60/40 rosin core solder, said it worked fine....now he's being told by another guy that he will have problems finishing the tank because of the acid in the solder. He said it will react with whatever he puts on it, and will not bond right. So, first of all, is this true?? And if it is, common sense tells me that a coat or two of epoxy primer should block whatever might be in the solder, if anything, and allow a normal finishing of the outside of the tank. So, all you body guys, what do you say???? Thanks, John

Rosin core is not the same as acid core.
I know.. I was just quoting what the other guy said. I guess Im just asking if there would be any problems with any kind of solder that has flux in it. I have never heard of anything leaching thru a good coat of epoxy.
