One thought on where you sit at this point: Having been exposed to fire and then setting for years (decades?), I highly recommend you dip and galvanize your frame. The tub is going to take blasting if there is any metal underneath that rust, but blasting won't get inside the frame rails. Dip and galvanize will ensure your hard work will remain on a solid foundation.
Thanks for the input I appreciate it. For the moment this project is on pause till I have a shop granted I may have the tub blasted and prime sometime before then
