After living in dry climate for the first year on my Mary, it has this past year been exposed to a lot of rain here in Germany. Before leaving Texas I had treated the inside of the frame with "frame saver" to prevent corrosion. Now I have realized that it has started to rust underneath the headtube/downtube gusset.

Any suggestions how to remove the rust or at least prevent it from getting worse?

Just sand it down or use steel wool to take the rust off. If it's little, use some nail polish even to keep it from oxidizing.

The issue is that it is underneith the gusset. In case of the Mary it is an open end gusset where water can enter from the sides easily. Since I don't think the powerdercoast would penetrate those small gaps it must be bare metal below. I sprayed now WD40 in there hoping to stop it from getting worse. I'll take a pic tonight.
