preping a frame for a frame swap-CJ

Well the time is getting closer and I am preping the frame. overall, its in great shape, just dirty, with some surface rust, nothing a wire wheel hasn't cleaned up. theres lots of areas that have black paint, (assuming orginal factory stuff) should I work like mad and get all that off? or just prime the whole thing and repaint? or before I prime, should I get some POR 15 and put that on then paint it?

Also, the inside of the frame is dirty, mosty dirt and crud. whats the easiest way to clean that?

Also, is there anything I should do to reinforce the frame? Redo the welds along the join in the frame, ect. any spot I would be a fool for not reinforcing?

thanks
