Help to remove surface rust

Any tips and guidance on removing this surface rust inside my belt pulley and area. I'm looking for an effective way to accomplish this and then paint that pulley area with black paint.

I'm looking to clean up that belt pulley area for show purposes and that rust stands out really bad when looking in the engine bay. Having the 3.7 engine really exposes this belt pulley area and looks like garbage with the heavy surface rust.

Any recommended grit sandpaper or a chemical I could safely spray on to remove the surface rust? What black paint should I use and looking to apply it with a brush not spray areasol.

Here is the area I'm looking to clean up and its on my car as is!



Have a great day!

I would think you could apply that stuff the turns rust black on the steel parts. Then they would blend in nicer than they are now.

Otherwise it looks like you'll have to remove the pulleys, clean, & paint. Getting them off is not that difficult. I've been thinking of doing that on my '09.

After asking around , that seems to be the majority of recommendations that you suggest. Getting that chemical product that turns the rust into black and prepares it to be painted.

Have a great day!

(Oops, I hope I don't post this twice)

Actually I was thinking of something like these, No additional painting required.

I'm not sure if Prep & Etch is the same, it's the first I've seen that.
