    That doesn't look too bad. I'd put a good rust treatment over it first, I have two in garage, think one's KuRust. Some trun the rust to solid black metal, chemical reaction of some sorts, so you can them sand, fill, whatevers needed.
    If it's really taken hold best to cut the rust out and weld fresh metal in, but this looks more like surface rust.

    I've got krust. So what's the procedure? Paint on the krust. Let it go for awhile. Sand it? What grit? Then sorry it! Do I need a laquer?
