some rust on output shaft...look

while doing brakes/rotors, I discover some rust forming on the shaft...I think this is the output shaft. The black coating on the shaft is peeling off and under it, I can see rust. There're already two areas peeling on the shaft. Anyone know how serious this can be?

that's a halfshaft, it's cosmetic. You'll end up replacing it someday anyway, but I would (because I'm anal retentive) sand it down and spray it so it looks nice.
