Rust Beads

My car has been sitting in a warehouse for the past 20 years. During this time, it has formed little rust beads all over the hood, top, and trunk. The underlying paint seems to look solid with the exception of chips here and there. If I wet sanded it, does anyone think I could bring it back? If that is the case, how would I go about it? Or is there some kind of other method that I am missing?

The car is rusting beneath the paint. Beneath that bead is a pit that once you get rid of the rust has to be filled in sanded smooth and then primed with a rust inhibiting sealer.

So just wet sand it like you would do anything else, and then put the inhibitor on it? What's the best one to use?
