Throw a tarp over the truck and roll up the sand blaster?
A little more gentle - use the pressure washer.
Some of the combinations can only be washed with a pressure machine - to many narrow gaps.
A brush will do to about 1 1/2 inches but you need clearance for the brush on both sides.
Or set them down with nutserts and slide them to wash.

If its diamond plate I use a mother powerball mini with mothers polish. worked great and made the box look like a mirror without tearing up my knuckles. I recc. buying two balls because the diamond plate tears them up really bad

if you have a buffer or buy a buffer wheel for your drill. Then find a piece of old carpet, mount it to the buffer wheel and go to town. It will last longer that most of the polishing balls and the carpet really get the diamond plate nice and clean.

Before you polish it (using the above recommendations) go to a Blue Beacon Truck Wash and have them hit it with acid.
