Might just get it sandblasted for the heck of it.
What did it smell like? Toluene is quite toxic, but it is also quite volatile and doesn't leave much residue.
Your choice, but an unlined barrel of automatic transmission fluid is virtually non toxic, and very safe after a burnout or two. Any large volume truck service center should have them for the asking.
