If you're finished with the fabrication then I would go ahead and season it seeing as you had it blasted. Just a light coat of cooking oil on everything inside the CC and get it up to 300-350 degrees for a little bit and then back it down, you can toss some fatty meat on there towards the end if you want. I wouldn't recommend getting any hotter than that because it tends to start warping the metal and you don't want that headache. I used the silver paint on mine also and it looked pretty good for a while but I went back with black paint when it was time for a make over.
