I use Red Kote.

After cleaning the inside fill the pin holes with JB weld, let dry, sand it down and coat insides, let set up for a week and paint the tank.

Another product is Por 15

For my 165 tank, I cleaned the exterior as well as I could, and soldered a piece to the bottom of the tank.

I had to be careful since the tank is made from three pieces soldered together.

I have used a large soldering iron (85w) to fill pin hole in tanks.  Takes a lot of patients & slow movement, but it will eventually work.  Can't do it with a torch, has to be an iron.  Oh, and you will need flux.  Lots of flux.
