Okilydoke..I have an "old school" wooden desk with flip top lid that im currently sanding back... ..sanded all the wood part, ready for a varnish,and replaced the bottom floor of deskwood....just got the legs left to do

Cupla questions for ya...

1. Can i wet sand the rust off the legs? is that the best method?
2. Do i need to "seal" the legs after ive sanded them? and if so with what? and then paint them with what?
3.i also found a couple of borer holes...not sure if the little bastards are still in there..should i bomb it?

if they're chromed, just get a good chrome polish and get the rust off with that.
if they're chromed you might have trouble painting them, ask pastor (nox) he'd know about painting chrome (cars)
