How do I remove rust from hard to reach areas from an outdoor wrought iron rail?




I have wrought iron railings where the individual rails (15 rails per 6 foot sections) go through a section 4 inches from the top railing. In between there is rust forming that was not powder coated. Is there a simple way to remove the rust, prime and repaint? Since the rust is hard to reach with a wire brush, what are my alternatives?

First of two simultaneous responses --

You should have success by sandblasting the rusted areas. Equipment is available for rent.

You can try to do that with high pressure water jet but be careful,after cleaning you can use any good rust converter [on eBay or Amazon] and clearcoat. Hope it helps and good luck!
