Find a small aircraft maintenance facility or a classic car restorer in your neck of the woods - they should both have access to what is termed "sloshing sealer" a chemical that is used to coat the inside of the tank to prevent rusting.

You can probably find a kit on the internet and do it yourself, but my preference is to leave this particular task to the professionals.
