Under hood rust, anyone bother?

Anyone come across this with their bus? Should this be dealt wit? If so, how'd you deal with it?

That is minor rust and nothing to worry about.

What are you referring to? Surface rust? spray some rust preventer on it.

Agree with the guys on rust.
I would be more interested/concerned with the oil leak in pic 4 however due to its seepage onto the exhaust? manifold. It seems minor too, but oil leaks usually don't get better in time...

Im not able to remember where under the hood that leak is by looking at pic 4. But, if its where i think, it's from an oil leak that has already been fixed.. well its more of a temporary fix until i find out if i wanna try and replace it myself or if I should hire someone qualified.
