Really Rusty Radiotor

Hi guys,

My mums house has a really rusty radiator in the bathroom. I've taken a look and from my personal view, it needs replacing, however the council have said there is nothing they can do for it. (Have they ever head of an replacement?)

Anyway, I've decided that I'll try to do my best at repairing it, so what ways should I go about this? I know I'll need some rust primer (any recommend brand or something?), and a paint stripper, then finally paint over it.

Any more tips??

If in a bathroom, the rust might be prevented by a suitable exhaust fan.

But, I doubt there is any serious concern about the radiator springing a leak. Cast iron can rust, but very slowly. If I'm right, the only issue is cosmetic.

Can you post a close-up photo of the rust?
