Remove Rust and Repaint a Lamp Post

What You'll Need
Steel Wool or Wire Brush
Rust Inhibitor
Oil Based or Metallic Paint

1. Always remove loose, flaking paint, dirt and grime with steel wool and wire brush.

2. Use the high speed rotary tool and #500 aluminum oxide grinding wheel or #530 stainless steel brush to remove hard to reach rust.

3. Rust forms quickly, so immediately apply a rust inhibitor to all bare surfaces and joints.

4. Use two coats of oil based or metallic paint to finish up.
