Jose you'd be surprised at how strong a properly done solder joint is, no need to over engineer a tin can gas tank with fiberglass, epoxy or similar type products. 60/40 plumbing solder will hold everything together well and metal working (tinsmith's) solder works good too and is what I used. A jar of soldering flux and a small hand held torch of some kind is also required to build one of these tanks.
