Get a wire wheel for your drill and knock loose any peeling paint and
rust and prime with rustoleum finish with your choice of paint. You
could use chemical strippers and naval jelly but why agravate yourself,
they will start to rust again in two years no matter what you do.
If you like an industrial look, i noticed that you can now get cold
galvinizing spray paint. Basically a zinc spray paint that makes metal look
like galvinized nails or fence wire.
You can use it as a primer too but I don't know how it effect the final
finish. Other brands available.
Brush-paint over the rust (scrape off any loose stuff, but no need to
get it all) with POR-15. You will never see rust again. Car restorers
use it all the time.
