Default How to clean up rust under chassis?

I got some FM frame rails from their deal of the day last week. While I'm under there I want to clean up some surface rust from some scrapes. Should I sand it by hand or wire wheel? I'm a little nervous about possible sparks near fuel filter, etc. I'm going to slap some rust bullet on and re-undercoat it afterwards.

Light wire brush by hand, then coat with POR15. Undercoat over that, and you should be good to go.
