Default rust on flywheel

I recently got a flywheel resurfaced and when i looked at it today there was some patchy areas of light surface rust on the flywheel. The question is should i hit it with some scotch brite pads or would that **** up the resurface? Also sparayed it with brake parts cleaner and most of the rust remained

hit it with the scotch pad to remove the surface rust. No that won't hurt anything. If your going to let it sit a while before installing it, lightly coat it in oil. Of course degrease it before installing it.
