Rust on Painted Surfaces

I am in the process of cleaning a Kelsey 6 x 10 that’s been in my basement for years. I’ve read and applied the suggestions about removing rust from the non-painted surfaces (e.g., chase bed), but there is also light rusk on some of the painted surfaces. Does anyone know how to remove it without damaging the paint? Sorry if this has been hashed over in the past—I couldn’t find anything on it when I searched.

I inherited a Kelsey 6x10 that had some surface rust on the painted parts. I used very fine steel wool and a little WD-40. It all came clean very well. Granted, the rust had not gotten under the paint and flaked it up.

Maybe try a very small inconspicuous area…
