Default Re: gas tank giving me the blues

I HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. Went to home depot and picked up some metal working solder. Tank has been sitting wide open for days now, but I filled it with water and turned it upside down, leaving hole where petcock goes unplugged. Basted on some flux that came with a propane torch that I had previously used and I heated it up and blobbed on copious amounts of the solder.

Good/ bad news -

Good - I didn't explode anything, still have all my fingers and no metal in mah face \m/ and 1 of the studs is leak free

Bad - one of the studs on the front of the tank still has a pin hole. Not leaking like it was at all but still leaking

I'm still left with questions - like can I grind down the ugly, or should I leave it alone
