Anyone got any tips for cleaning one? It's going to be used so hammerite's not an option!

Cheers lads.

get a roofers blowtorch and burn the f'ck out of it...
good wire brush...
then 'black lead' it mate...

do the torch thing outside though cos i did it in situ once and the heat warped all the doorliners!!!

Cheers for the links and advice boys, should've explained, it's not been painted, just in a house that's had water damage and it's got rusted up, probably gonna go foe the grate polish but wanted ant tips for getting the rust off.
