5KT gas tank leak

Hi all -

A friend of mine has recently purchased? a '89 5KT, and is in the process
of trying to take it to a mechanic to get an opinion.

Now that he's managed to get it started (aren't jumpers marvelous?), it
seems that there's a leak in the forward seam of the gas tank.  It's
not pouring out, but there's a slow drip, even when the car isn't moving.

Is there some way to patch this long enough to drive the 50km to his
mechanic? He's thinking silicone...
