painting lintels over doors and windows

Hello,
We have a two-year old brick rambler in Virginia. Some of the lintels have rust spots...possibly the result of power washing by the builder or Hurricane Isabel. Should I sand and paint them? Will that prevent long-term rusting? Can you suggest paint/primer?

Thank you!

If these are metal, the rustoleum products that bond to rust for priming may be the very thing for priming. You could choose a finish paint based upon the requirements of the primer.
