    There are twelve of those shelves - some worse than the one in the photo. Plenty of scope for trying out different methods. Thanks all for the advice and encouragement. I'll check out Youtube videos as well. Much to learn.

    I'd like to try that. I've got hydrochloric acid, bought many years ago and used only once (yes, scared of it - you read me right, Phil), oxalic acid crystals and some CLR. One of those, or something entirely different?

    All the pieces are stamped Made in Australia, Marc. The slotted-angle uprights, which were stored somewhere else, have no rust. When you say wire brush and grinder, do you mean go back to bare metal? And zinc(?) I'm new to this - so a brand name of some sort would help.

    Fourteen years ago, I was given some Dexion 160 shelving (part of a dismantled shopfit). I assumed that a) the bits were powdercoated and b) that powdercoating was some sort of magic protection. Stored the shelves in an unlined shed. I'm half a mile from the sea. Recently I decided I could re-purpose some of the shelving for use in the house. Nasty shock. Extent of rust varies (depending where each shelf was in the stack) but photo gives the idea. Wattyl's 3-step process seems to be the...
