Default ABS lines rusting

I noticed tonight that the bottom hard line from the ABS pump to the master cylinder is rusting. It'* almost as if there is an issue with dissimilar metals. I'm not sure anyone with a standard intake would see this but a FWI makes it stick out pretty clearly.
I'm hoping this is purely surface rust although it is pretty nasty looking. I would post a picture if I knew how.

I'm sure its just surface rust and will clean up quickly with an sos pad.

To post a pic first you have to upload to a website, cardomain or photobucket are a few free ones but there are others.
After you have uploaded the pic to a web site you need to link the pic here using the image tags. You can practice in the test section till you get it mastered

I dont know if its a good idea but I spray all my steel lines with castrol chain lube and it does a beautiful rustproofing job.4bucks at part source, I spray it on anything that will rust.
