Do it. Repair it. Leak test it thoroughly.
The cost is worth the risk.
My two cents!

It's definitely worth doing, especially for that price. However I'd look really closely to make sure nothing is cracked or any other issues are present.

Resealing a tank that size is not an easy task, not that resealing any tank is easy, but a large tank like that is even harder with the size of the panels. As long as you have an idea of what tools you'll need to do it with then I say go for it.

Would it be the same concept of doing a small tank or are there special things that need to be done due to the scale of the project and the pressure being exerted

Edit* I've never owned a tank even close to this size if that helps any lol

I've never done a tank that large either, but I know my 125 weighs a ton so I'd probably look at making forms or something to help keep the panels in place and all that.
