Resealing a leaky tank

THINKING about tackling this.

My 55g leaked last year. It's been sitting outside since then. I would have no idea what I'm doing but no one really wants to trade anything for a leaky tank. The stand is... well, it's okay. It held up but it made me nervous.

So I know I can strip the current sealant and reseal but that seems.. dangerous for a clumsy person. Wouldn't that mean having to realign the glass panels to the bottom glass panel? Or is this less complicated than I thought?

Lazy idea would be to put MORE sealant over the current seams to completely cover the whole joint basically. But I don't know if that's a good idea.

:I I really wanna do something with the tank but I feel like it's above my skills and I don't have the money to really pay someone else to do it. especially since if I DO reseal it somehow I'd need to buy a cover, lighting and more decor.

However I'd use aquarium silcone they sell caulking size tubes on ebay.
