Try Permatex rust removal spay. I used it on an old motorcycle with lots of chrome that was rusted from top to bottom and end to end. It worked amazingly good. I brushed it on areas near painted surfaces. Mostly I applied the spay let it set as recommended and simply rinsed it of with a garden hose. I reapplied it on the tough spots and rubbed a little with a soft cloth and it looked like new again. It only took me about an hour. After removing the rust I applied chrome polish to protect the finish. I put over 50,000 miles on that bike before I sold it and it never rusted again...
