equipment

bollocks - went to do cleans today and my beloved bar which i had left outside for the last month was beginning to rust. It hurt - quite a lot. in fact it nearly stripped my skin off. now that i have finished crying, ive got a question for you outside strongman people types

how do you get rid of rust?
how do you stop your metal objects rusting?
what the best way to store equipment outside? its simply not feasible to store it inside for me. are we talking about a big tarpaulin or is it gonna need something more heavy duty - talking about bar and weights really.
cheers

    How rusty was it that it hurt more than normal, I would assume it would just have been surface rust. Anyway, you can use steel wool to get most of it off if it's not rusted too bad (not much more than surface rust). Then use this stuff to coat it http://www.por15.com/product.asp?productid=6 and it'll be fine. Por-15 is amazingly strong, like it says you don't even have to remove rust before using it and it resist just about anything.
