If you are going to have the block boiled out then just strip it down and ship it off.
Do you mean "green scotch brite" as in the common scotch brite rectangular pads, or one of the round, mounted automotive pads?

I'm already expecting that I'll need to have the block pressure-tested since I found a corroded head bolt. What's a ball-park price for having a block boiled?
