Little rust spots on cab. Hidden by door repair?

I have a 2014 f250 crew cab. On the bottom of our doors are round rubber dampeners/bushings... Where these impact the cab, I've developed a little amount of surface rust.

How would you guys recommend treating this? I was thinking a wire brush... Some rust inhibitor... Primer and touch up paint. It's a hidden area. I don't care if it's perfect.

Any thoughts?

What I do is I tape the unaffected areas first and use a rust remover, just follow the instructions written, then use sandpaper just to polish. Lastly, add primer and the paint.

I need to check mine.

After your repair I would add some clear tape film in those areas to avoid it in the future.
