I will be replacing the floorpans in my '63 chevy II in the next couple of weeks. After I finish doing this, would it be safe to sandblast the trunk, new floorpans, firwall, and underside of the car to get the rough spots, dirt, and grime off??

Why not sandblast 1st. That way you will find out where all the bad areas are. Dirt and undercoating can hide a lot.
