Frame rust?

My frames rusty and was wondering how is the best way to take it off?

Grind to bare metal and coat or use rust converter then coat?

And what should I use to do these jobs

Pm the vendor named MagnetMan he works for (or owns ) Magnet Paints and they make a product called chassis saver, it's exactly what you're looking for.

I've been using chassis saver with great success. I use a wire brush drill attachment and then paint the chassis saver on. Great product.

Anyway to spray that stuff effectively inside the frame? I was working on the couple of minor spots i had on the outside the other day, and noticed there were some pretty crusty feeling spots inside the frame that probably need some attention.

Keep this in mind: these rust converters etc NEED rust in order to work properly. Use a wire brush to clean the loose stuff off, clean well and apply your product.
