Forget the soda blaster. Go to 40 grit to remove your paint you can give it a once over when down to the bare steel if you want with 80 grit. Will cut your time way down and not get the metal as hot from sanding. Two good coats of spi epoxy will fill 95% of the 40 marks. Then put down some 2-k. Only use a cheap primer if you dont care if the paint stays on.
