I would definitely be very very careful when cutting on tanks. I recently went to a professional welding shop to cut the end off of a tank and when they discovered what had been in it they absolutely refused to do the job. I also lost my best friend in Houston welding a patch on an oil storage tank. The Vice President was on site and promised him that the tank had been purged and cleaned and basically told him to do the patch or get in his truck and go home. He took their word for it and now is no longer with us. Another friend was a mortician and handled the funeral. They never found Jerry's eyes and the mortician said that the explosion literally broke every bone in his body. All I can say is be VERY CAREFUL. Best of luck on your build.
