Removing rust

I just acquired a beautiful Grandis a couple weeks ago and it's actually original paint and decals and in pretty decent shape. Specs of rust on the chrome and some rust on the paint, but you can only see it if you get close up. I'm thinking to use a solution like Evapo-Rust to prevent any more rust and then try to protect it with a rust protector and then wax. I've already used vinegar and aluminum foil to remove most of the rust on the chrome with some pretty good results but there are some small pitting in areas.

Anyone used this stuff and had any experience with it?

Don't waste time reading about it, just go buy some and use it.
It works well, a great time saver, and an excellent value.

Evapo-Rust is the real deal.
