I kinda copped out by just saying rusted instead of actually explaining, the paint is chipping in a few spots on the bottom half and under I can see just a little surface rust from water getting under the paint, would I be possible to just sand it all down to the metal, wire brush the areas the sander doesn't get and then paint an refinish it, or would the tiny bit of surface rust continue to eat at it afterwards?

as long as you get all the rust off it will be fine to prime and paint over

Go down to your local autoparts store and pick up a bottle of rust neutralizer. Very cheap.
