The fastest, cheapest, safest way to start is to find a professional blaster to blast the frame. To have a pro do it will cost you a couple hundred bucks. You will spend more than that on materials and equipment to do the job.

From there, you will have to evaluate the frame for damage and repair that damage.

As far as painting, you don't mention if you are restoring or just building a hot rod. Your paint choice will depend on that decision. If building a hot rod, there are a number of options out there. Do a bit of research and pcik the option that fits your needs.

When sandblasting the frame the best thing is an epoxy primer then urethane SS right over that in a "wet on wet" fashion. No saiding needed.
