Re: Start of rust on bimini suppport bars
Get a container of 3M "Finesse it". Great for everything from stainless to gel coat. No silicones etc. expensive... about $20 a pint. Very easy to use. Everyone has their way of doing it. I personally would avoid any liquid acid until the rust is deep. It sounds like you just have a light surface condition. Acid attacks the grain boundaries in stainless and will make the rust come back even faster... and worse.
