Hope you love exploring and cleaning your new treasure. You sure did it the right way, researching, asking great questions, and getting your dream within budget! Hats off to you girl!
Haven't found a way to keep the rusty spots off, I scrub, and clean them off and by the end of the season, guess what's back? Love to hear if something actually gets them off for good-besides painting. Scrubbing them off isn't the problem here, used baking soda, vinegar and a plastic scrubby+ grandma's secret weapon(elbow grease). Noticed that the newer models have painted covers...hmm.
