You can remove the rust with a dremel tool and take the flaky chrome off. Use a dab of por or rust preventive paint. Top coat it with silver paint or use a piece of chrome tape. The frame will hide most of it I believe.

So I grabbed a drill bit metal brush head and took that rust right out!

What amazed me most is that it seemed the regular chrome did not get scratched by the brush... score! Rustoleum makes a chrome paint, and after a few light coats, you would never even notice it.

Turned out to not be a big deal at all
