Even if you get the rust out the damage is still there. Think of it this way if the tank had been destroyed in a fire then removing the ashes would not fix the damage, rust is simply ashes from slow oxidation and is no different than ashes from fast oxidation from a fire -the damage is still there! Don't use a rusted out tank, it can easily get you hurt or killed!
