leaking tank

hi

Previous owner did a crash landing with what is now my T400 and tank now has minor leak from one of the fixings for the fairing. Any ideas on whether they are repairable? image attached.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

thanks

If it's a small hole you could probably plug it with epoxy

JB Weld the inside, then thread the screw in. Problem is you may have to redo if you take the tank off again.

That's what I did...
