Default Best rust removal/ remover??

I have a a couple on intake pipes and exhaust pipes that need to be treated for rust. Basically the inner sides of the intake piping has accumulated a good 1-2mm's of rust and I need to get it off and re-coat the inside. I have been suggested to sand blast, others ball blast, and then others to just replace with aluminum piping. Thing is it is a custom FMIC piping and to replicate it may take some money. The exhaust pipes have external surface rust. Does any one know of good ways to remove rust such as solvents, sand paper and such other methods?

thank you.

Sand it down, put naval jelly on it and paint it. If you happen to have easy access to a sand or bead blaster, that will definently do the job. But it doesn't sound like a lot of rust not really worth it IMHO. Sanding does a pretty good job.

Default thanks

I have access to a sand blaster if I had to but I will try the sanding to see if it will get rid of most of it. I also heard that Krylon Piant has a primer spray that turns rust into a primer through a chemical reaction. Know anything about this? "Naval Jelly?" Is that a certain type of jelly or rust inhibitor and is that the brand name?

Naval jelly is a generic term for phosphoric acid, I believe. You have to be careful not to leave it on too long
