Nose Gear Rust

Working on the nose gear leg, I noticed rust on the threads at the end of the tube and inside the tube.  Van’s (and everyone else I asked) says this is no big deal and to just knock off the rust with a wire brush and use some boiled linseed oil to keep the rust from coming back.  In short, it looks worse than it is.
