Picked up a sokolov mount off of IMA which I am very pleased with (free shipping on something this heavy is pretty sweet). In an effort to take good care of it, I was wondering what the best method would be to clean up surface rust off of it. This is a steel mount with a little bit of wear and tear.

To help preserve the wooden wheels, I have the mount sitting on top of a towel with a normal .30 cal ammo can underneath it. This is just enough height to keep the mount mostly level with the wheels completely off the ground. I figured it would be good for the wood to not have to support all that weight all the time. Is this a good decision? Is there anything I can do to take better care of the wooden components on the wheels and help prevent any major corrosion on the steel parts? As always thank you for your wisdom!

Frankly, its Russian. Just store it out in the snow and it will be fine. :)

Work on the rust... otherwise I don't think much needs to be done other that keeping it from getting wet/rusting.
