Cleaning up old work

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I moved a few years ago and one of my chandelier pieces had to sit in a garage for about 2.5 years.  I pulled it out today because I finally have a place to put it again, and found it had (not surprisingly) developed quite the patina and is even rusting in many places.  It's made of mild steel and was originally treated with 4 or 5 coats of linseed oil (about 4 years ago).   Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could return this to it's original luster?  Thanks as always for your input fellas!  (photo of the piece attached)
