I don't share your view on this, and here is why, if it was just to be a runner and ride around I would not seal it either, but he is tearing this down to nuts and bolts, so why not add an extra layer of protection to the tank? Make her solid for another 30 odd yrs? Just me being anal I guess. I do understand if it is rusted enough to leak it is junk, I have motobecane syndrome...so yeah, but on a full on resto, I would add anything I could to preserve it. Ounce of prevention stuff... :)
