    Removing rust of exhaust ?

    Anyone know how to remove rust of exhaust, i have a yasuni c16 and its starting to rust, i need a product that would eat away at the rust and bring it back to raw metal again any ideas, i was thinking about nitro morse but i dont know as never used it before i was thinking about spraying it with exhaust paint but that goes dull black witch isn't very attractive and i also cant have it powder coated as the bloke in the powder coaters said it will crack and peal of so im stuck between a rock and a hard place....

    as far as i know, there isnt a product to get rid of rust...you will probs have to sand it down with wet n dry and high temp paint it.

    either that or a delicate blasting would work , i used a product once that was like a wash , very runny it painted straight onto rust and made it chemically inert ready for painting , worked a treat on an old iron fly wheel which is now the base of a rotary dryer in a m8's back garden . will ask when i go back to the shop next for the name of the stuff , it made the rust go black .
    we then just painted it with hammerite and presto

    Cheers for this info guys, i painted my exhaust on my old bike with high temperature paint but didn't come out very nice, i wanted it to look a gloss black but i dont think you can buy a gloss black high temperature paint... Did yasuni make one of these exhausts a few years back a limited edition on that was gloss black?

    Perhaps you should think again.....search ebay for engine paint.

    The rust removers you will require will be that of the price of a new exhaust,Sandblasting is the prefered method of eliminating rust but certain liquid chemicals are just as good.

    thanks, i have found something here what might work, but i dont know how effective it will be http://choiceful.com/categories/prod...oduct%2Bsearch, would leaving the exhaust in a pool a caustic soda over light do the job? i have already tried mr muscle over cleaner and that didn't even touch it...

    i have a good feeling about the caustic soda this is what it does to aluminum
