You going to make them shiny? It's a little work but I polished the lower legs on the Beast.

I've never started with anything finer than 600 but if they are really pitted 240 May me the place to start. I've got one of those Black and Decker mouse sanders that uses paper tha looks like the bottom of a clothes iron. The little pointed end makes it easie to get back into the tight places and will really cut down on the elbow grease. You can usually find used sanders like it at Flea Markets and Pawn shops for around 10 bucks and they are worth what they cost new if you got a lot of work to do. You also need to get one of those cloth polishing wheels to go on your electric drill and some of that Meguirs all metal polis in the small black tub to really bring a a bright shine to them. After you get the pitted stuff off of them with the coarser stuff go to 1000 grit wet or dry paper and wet sand it some times I even step up to 2000 grit to take the fine scratches out.

Alter you wet sand them use the polish with the drill and cloth wheel to polish it out. A little dab of that polish will do a lot so don't put too much on it or you will sling it everywhere with the drill. It will turn ral black as you use that wheel on it and you are starting to get there. Let that polish dry up on that wheel and take some kind of straight edge like flat wide putty knife and hold it up against the wheel and spin it and it will clean your wheel out and start in again. After you get it shining pretty good wipe it clean and buff it with a soft cloth and it will look like Chrome, I wax mine after I'm done to keep it from oxidizing again but if it starts looking a little dull a hand polishing once or twice a season will keep them shiny and not get like that again, Happy Hunting, it's work but it's not a bad thing to do when you're humped up in the house during the cold months.
