after cleaning the tank with vinegar i rinsed it out with gas and carb cleaner a few times. then filled it back up with gas. not sure what i should do about possible rust i'll try and get a pic from the interior of the tank.

the thing is the reddish stuff didn't come out of the tank when i drained it just the carbs and old fuel lines.

Welcome to the blue cb360 club...Oh and DTT.  She a fine lookin machine. 
Do you have THE Official Honda Workshop Manual for it yet?

That tank is rusty as hell. Soak again in vinegar, with some screws or something to shake around every so often, leave it for a day, strain the vinegar, do it again, etc. Rinse with water and baking soda, coat with oil, fill with gas. New lines and inline filters.
unplug the connectors from the harness and multimeter the shit out of them

Keeping fuel in it.

You can also use a sealant such as Redkote or Por-15, but stay away from Kreem.

im redoing the rust removal with vinegar, i poured a gallon into the tank and a few handfuls of aquarium gravel to scrape out the sediment and rust. i heard that nuts and bolts can cause more damage to the tank putting scratches throughout, found that aquarium gravel is more gentle. i plan on letting it soak for 24 hours with vigorous shaking every so often to break more rust off.
thinking of redoing that process 2 or 3 times with fresh vinegar each time and see how it turns out. Im thinking about doing a tank sealer either REDKOTE or POR-15 has anyone used either before and are there tips or benefits for them.

ill take pictures of what comes out of the tank and the inside after each change

why the baking soda in the rinse? and what oil do you mean?

He just means motor oil. It will skim-coat the tank and prohibit it from flash rusting.

Baking soda will neutralize the vinegar.
