NAS D90 brush guard rust at base connector

Can someone suggest a solution to the rust and delamination that has occurred on my low mileage D90?
It has been suggested to sand blast and repaint it.
Should I try to re-powder coat it?
Thanks for any help.

A wire brush on a grinder and paint will make it look ok for a few years.

this shows a little on my D90 and my old RRC that had the OEM brush guard. If you're rattle can spraying it, be sure to lay down a good coat of primer.

I've heard good things about a product called Chassis Saver. It works best when you don't complete blast off the rust (or if you do, you'll have to rough up the metal a little for best results). I plan to use it on my 1986 D 90, particularly to keep the original chassis from needing replacement AND on new floor boards I need to install.

This is the only option to do it correctly.
