Went out this morning and banished the rust on the bottom of the wrought iron fence. Not a great job, in fact it pretty much sucks, and I would fire anybody that did it that way. But, with a couple of weeks of weathering I think it will blend in enough to make it to Spring.
I could barely reach the damn fence and the wind was blowing 25 miles an hour. So all it got in the way of prep was a quick swipe with the steel brush. Just enough for keep it from chipping back off tomorrow.
