I have a Pioneer RT-707 Reel to Reel that has a bottom plate that sat on a wet carpet for a while and now has rust on it (pictured below). The rust does not go completely through the plate (pictured below) and the interior electronics appears to have been spared.

I had to spray Radio Shack Contact Cleaner and Lubricant to the screw heads and then use vice grips to loosen them and then a screw driver to remove them.

Any ideas on how or what to use to remove the rust?

A couple of methods come to mind another rust remover is naval Jelly
or soak in a vinegar salt solution.

However I would get a electric drill and use a wire wheel. also used a very rough sandpaper. ( I have used this in the drawers of a big VIDMAR Parts Cabinet. Som of the bottom drawers were almost as bad as your problem. I was surprised how fast it was compared to chemicals.)
