I recently "restored" a big Lodge pan with some relatively light spots of rust using a nylon wheel in my drill. I don't know what grit of abasive but its one of the ones sold for removing paint and rust, etc.
Washed with soap and water to get the residue out and immediatly put on stove to dry out.
Seasoned it with oil in the oven and then cooked some bacon.
Works great and no stick now.
