pitting on fork tubes

Anyone know how you can safely remove rust and pitting from the fork tube? I have rust spots at the very top of mine right under the triple on the f4i.

I would think that #0000 steel wool would be fine. It polishes chrome nicely.

This plus naval jelly should do the trick.

Interesting. All I get from my naval is a little bit of lint.
