I have blasted aluminum before. No problems. Make sure it is 100% clean (NO RESIDUE) before installing. Your local tombstone maker will do it cheap. Are you gonna post pics of this 'vette or what? I am dying to see this thing. Also, how did the welding of the head go? If you didn't weld it, what did you do? Bill

What rear are you putting in it? Will an 8.8 from a stang fit? I want to buy a 'vette and I have a rear from my old stang with 3.55 gears. I want to mini tub it and put ladder bars in it. Go fast straight car. Might put the FI 302 in it with a T5 as well.
