Westins rustin'

One of my Westin steps has a small rust spot starting. What is the best way to get rid of it? It is just on the surface, but I don't want to use steel wool. I'd rather have a small rust spot than a slightly larger scratchy dull spot. Any ideas? I bought the truck used and the steps were already on, so no idea about retailer or warranty.

So I take it you have the stainless nerfs? Or do you have the black tubes?

They are "stainless", but apparently rust does not qualify as a stain. No, they are not the black ones.

Use the steel wool and then buff them out using a good quality polish for stainless and a power buffer. After they are back to an acceptable state of gleam, wax them.

May be elementary to some, but in the past I've always cared more about how my car ran than how it looked. Spent a lot more of my time under the hood. (couldn't find a little guy with a wrench)
