Any way to make sure the rust in the interior of the pipes in the frame is free of rust? Pressure sand blast or naval jelly deluge?

yeah good question, i like sand blasting.
well if you really think there is rust in the pipes and bad you can make the tiniest hole and put a bit of water in shake it around then tip all the water out. if the water is brown it is rusty. but you gotta make sure you get every last bit of water out.
