Run a wire brush across it and follow Chrisn's advice. And either move those shoes or throw a drop cloth over them. Who leaves shoes lying around on what is obviously a job site?

Want a super tough finish, concider having it powder coated, or take it to an auto body shop and have them paint and clear coat it.
