Default rusted windcover safe to use?

I left my gold taj windcover from H-S outside, and it got really rusted on the inside, is it still safe to use?

unless the entire windcover is red and flaking off... You'll be fine. Just watch incase the rust get to the point where it starts to powder off

--- That's what the water if for dust will collect in the base and you are good to go! and if you are that concerned, you could always just buy/make a new one.

--- No lower than 300grit though. Anything lower will simply be too rough, if you want you can go from 300-500-800-1000-1500-2000grit to make it nice again. and put some rubbing compound on it to polish up the final product.

Steel wool would probably work pretty well too.

Let me just say that you ruined your wind cover, just like dropping a bowl or vase it's over. Move on, get another one, don't take a chance over a few dollars, don't you want everything pristine?

Yea, use the sandpaper and when the rust is gone, put some vaseline or something on it to keep it from rusting any further.
That's what they tell you to do with small rust spots on your car.
