Inner Frame Rails

I want t clean the inside of my frame out, I'll be sandblasting the outside of the frame and powdercoating it. Is there anything wrong with getting the frame acid dipped? What are the pros and cons of getting it dipped?

I've been smacking the side of the frame with a mallet and then blowing out the rails with compressed air...is this good enough? I was thinking of maybe cutting out 2 inch squares in each rail so I can somehow coat the rails with por15 or some other kind of other rust preventative product. Has anyone coated the inside of their frame rails? How did you go about it? Did you use por15?

I was thinking about spraying por15 inside the frame, but how do I go about their three step process? Should I use the marine clean and metal ready, then flush out the frame with water, wait a week for it to all dry then spray the por15 with a wand? Or should I just go straight to the por15 after I knock off all the rust and scale from inside (that is after i blow it all out)?

If you are going to powdercoat the outside...do NOT paint the inside first, It will just burn off when the powder is cured.. What I would do is the following.. Clean the frame the best you can....then have baked to burn off the grease on the inside...then have blasted....then have powder coated inside and out. You can draw the powder in farther than you can spray the paint.
