I got a 42 M Farmall with the original grill, pretty rusty, not deep rust, but looks red, and ugly, what do i do 1st and 2nd to to kill the rust, so i can paint it, so it will last another 50 years? The gas tank and hood faired a lot better over the years !

Take it off and sand blast it. Well away from the rest of the tractor so you don't get sand where you don't want it.

If you sand blast it turn the PSI way down so you don't warp the snot out of your grill.

Company I worked at 25 years ago made food/chemical processing equipment, about 70% in dairy processing equipment. Boss took charge of a team trying to speed up the polishing and finishing of machines to Three A standards, a sanitary finish. They tried glass beading 2B finish stainless steel, tried shot blasting, sand blasting, everything they tried warped 14 ga 304 stainless (.078") Using crushed walnut shells really didn't do much to 2B (std mill finish) sheet but could still warp it.

I took a tractor gas tank to a local radiator shop (after cleaning it) to have him solder several pin holes. He had a dandy little home made sand blaster that was a little smaller than a quart paint gun. I wish I had looked that thing over a little more - it would work perfectly for what you're wanting to do.

Fast Farmall read answers again!! blasting is probably not "the ticket"!!! Those little strips will bend easily. I would use Evap-o-Rust,working over a tub and keep brushing it on. If there are any pits I would treat with phosphoric acid after. Hundreds of threads here to read about killing rust.
