Cleaning Pitted Fridge Shelves / Racks?

The ongoing saga of the Dometic RM760 is a bit tedious but what the heck it was free; yeah right!

I found shelves because of all your help good people but the best of the ones I did find are pitted from poor maintenance in the past.

Is there a way of cleaning up the pitted stuck on crud that is there?

I don't want to use an abrasive as that will remove the chrome plating.

I may have to bite the bullet and just paint them and if this is the best option; what type of paint should I use?

I was thinking an epoxy of some sort.

Don't think I would worry about the chrome plating as it probably has rust under it anyway.
We've done 2 frig's:
First frig - we had plated (nickel not chrome - $$$)
Second frig - we cleaned with a wire wheel on our grinder and finished with a Dremel and small wire wheel. 3-4 coats of Rust-o-leum
