Me vs. Rust

This is what I'm currently scheming: how to remove rust from this metal bin. At an estate sale a couple weeks back, I had lofty imaginations of the ice-filled bin surrounded by friends at a hot barbecue as it chilled their choice bottled beverages. That dream and the five dollar price tag is what sold me. Into the pick-up truck it went! And onto my porch, where it sat a couple of weeks, forlorn and forgotten.

I am well armed...sort of. I'm no handy man, but instead, a chick with fervor. I will destroy you, rust!

Here are a couple of DIY instructions I checked out before starting:
