Sand off any rust and clean off anything loose, then hit it with a
degreaser of somekind - dishsoap, simple green, etc. Then I'd
recommend hitting the rusty spots with a rust reformer paint. They're
at Home Depot right next to the other spray cans. As in all painting,
95 % of the work is prep, 5% not putting on so much it runs.
And mask anything around you don't want to get paint on. You'll end up
with white dots all over.
