Rusted patio support brackets


I have metal support brackets that bolt to my 4x4 uprights supporting the patio. they are rusting and I'm a bit concerned on how to fix the problem. I would attach pics but can't get them to 100 kb size, can email if asked.

Any Help?

Ayuh,.... Wire brush 'em as best as ya can,...
Prime 'em with Rustoleum rusty metal primer,...
'n top coat 'em with Rustoleum industrial enamel, in the color of yer choice...

Or,... Find yerself a can of Fluid Film, 'n spray 'em with that every couple of years....
