my advice would be to plate the effected areas,but as you stated this could end up costing you more than what the cars worth, get a small wire brush or a 180 grit sandpaper and remove as much of the rust as you can,

try to get the metal as shiny as you can

then put some rust remover on the effected area and leave for the stated time on the bottle

id advise applying it twice to be effective

then id use some hammerite as this has excellent rust inhibitors which holds back rust,but will a bit lumpy due to the texture of it

or prime and paint but wont last as long as the hammerite

hope this is of help
