Post Sandblasting

I'm getting ready to remove the tub of my Cj5 and sandblast the tub and frame. Should the welding of rusted footwells be done before sandblasting? Does anyone have any suggestions on the type of sand, weight, pressure, etc. to use?
Also, I'm thinking about applying POR-15 to the frame and underside of tub when I finish. Any suggestions regarding this application?

Ever tried Sandpaper?
Just kidding. I saw you weren't getting any replies so I thought I'd drop you a line!

Any time an agressive means of cleaning something, some metal is removed. I have used crushed walnut shells and just enough pressure to remove the paint or rust I was working on. Take your time and watch what the blasting is doing. It is easier to step up gradually than it is to replace metal.
