Default UDS build questions

Hi, all. This site is amazing, and has convinced me that I should build a UDS. Here's where I'm at (and it's not very far, but still. Gotta start somewhere, right?).

I have a drum with a tan liner in it. It looks like paint, but I don't want to spend 2 days trying to get it out by burning and wirewheeling, so I will probably pay the $50 to get it sandblasted (that's actually the cheapest I've found around here--ouch).

The questions I have now are:
-Do I need to do a burn after it's blasted, or can I just season it at that point?
-The EMT locknuts they have at HD look like they may be galvanized. They don't say one way or another. Has anyone found a source for non-galvanized locknuts for the 3/4 pipe?
-The valve I got has a plastic washer in it (it's a gas shutoff valve). Is that ok? I'm not planning on using the 90 and extension, just putting the ball valve on the end of the 3/4 close.

I'm sure there will be more later. Thanks so much for all of your help.
