I've never used a tank liner but from what I've read Cassell has a good reputation.
Do some research and then ask the tank mfr what type resin they use and if they lined it, with what. That may help you decide which way to go.

Maybe you won't need to do anything.

Its been a hectic week, but the tires are on. All is left is to paint the new rear end, mount the battery, and get the seat cushion on along with the front brake.
