If it's just light rust, some steel wool may do the trick. If it's fairly heavy rust you can use some sandpaper or a wire wheel disc on your drill to take it off.

Remove the rust, fill in the pitting with bondo then spray with rusty metal primer (it also comes in gray not just a redish color) then epoxy or enamel paint.
