this is not strictly arts and crafts i know,but i was wondering if anyone had any idea about what to do with a perfectly functional pram chassis that is really really rusty.

was thinking about sanding/wire wooling/wire brushing ?all the rust off..and then...??

is the metal pitted at all?

rub down with wire wool. possibly brillo pads. , dry throughly and then rub the frame with a polish.

mmm...pitted?...not sure but it is really rusty....so i'd guess it probably is.

it's so rusty i was thinking about spraying or painting it.

what pram is it?

its a silver cross from the eighties...not quite a coach built thing....so big and gorgeous but not really really swanky.

(it seems such a shame to not use it)

it will be fine, dont paint it or anything. you can use a cream cleaner and wire wool. they do clean up very well even if the metal is pitted slightly in places.
