Chip??? No, use a wire brush. And spray it down regularly and copiously with WD-40, then let it dry. The film it leaves behind is what protects from corrosion, it's what the product is designed to do (WD = Water Displacement). Works wonders as well on aircraft in places close to the ocean, and on boats. Just don't put it where you don't want any dust to accumulate. The film attracts it and gums everything up.
