Default Metal Table Finishing

Guys-
I want to pick your brain again, since you always have such good insight. I've fabbed up a table base for the piece of wood I asked about earlier. I'm curious the best way to finish it now. I need to drill some holes for the bolts through the top and the adjustable feet in the bottom. My question is can I leave the top plate rusty since it will get very little exposure? Also, I was thinking of working the legs over with a wire wheel for a brushed look, will that look okay or just amateur?

Thanks!

Uniform 60grit flap wheel and clear coat looks cool. I have an old Bridgestone roadie I built for my wife that I wire wheeled the entire frame and clear coated, it looks pretty bitchen. I used coarse stainless wire brushes of different sizes and tried to keep my motions as uniform as possible.

Jackson, thanks for the tip! I'll give it a shot with the wire wheel, that is where I'm leaning anyway. I think I'm just going to coat the top in clear since it's going to be underneath the wood.
