Epoxy primed a tad more 

I bare metal then a heavy coat of rust eater then a few days later I use a soft nylon round wheel in a drill and clean up metal again brings in up very clean 

you can see fitst pic where I’ve started , I then put a rust proofer on a scotch bright do it goes on smooth like the picture above
