You would be gambling to reuse the old cylinder as others have stated too. Sandblasting the bore -not good. Honing -depends who and how it was done. If not done correctly, out-of-roundness and taper will occur. Was the bore measured using a precision dial bore gage? The cylinder blueprint bore finish spec is 80 Ám. A new cylinder costs $120. Maybe better planning was needed so you could have saved a little each month til affordable rather than attempting to do it all at once? I know this can be difficult to do when on a limited income as emergencies arise that require the extra funds be used for them. This is one job that the old Dr.Demming mantra for manufacturing applies ever so much, "Do The Job Right The First Time". If you haven't already purchased the gasket kit and O-Ring piston, I have some new unused ones I'd let you have at cost.
