Sand is silica...using that creates a dust and can give someone exposed silicosis which is bad news..It is not just the guy doing the blasting but also anyone in the neighborhood that may be exposed..I would suggest that you use a grinder with a flap wheel to get all the easy areas and then blast the corners and other places that are hard to get to..Use something like starblast that does not contain silica if you can get it..That is a brand name and you may need to do some calling to find someone in your area that has it..Also wear a dust mask under your hood..

Good Luck

Sam
