Removing rust...

Don't worry no body rust!

So my front drivers side brake pad blew apart on my way home from a trip. I took it easy the whole way home using the gears to slow the truck down, but the rotor still took a good beating. Went out to do the brake job and there noticed a ton of rust particle build up on the wheel and aluminum on the running board. Most of it will rub off expect for some parts. Anyone have an idea on what I could use to remove it?

Clay Bar will probably be the best place to start. It works very well at removing the small pieces of metal that cause the small rust spots gently. Chris

I'm a little more country than that...
