rust on exhuast tip

I have a TRD exhuast and it has rust spots all over the tip of it. What can I use to clean this up and make it shiny again?

Use this:
Eagle One Nevr-Dull Cotton Wadding Polish
http://www.autobarn.net/oil1035605.html

It is some of the best stuff that money can buy! Used it on my GTS Exhaust and it looks like brand spanking new.

HI
i don't think you can just remove rust with a cleaner since that is the actual metal that has been oxidized.

Stainless will rust when it is the secondary metal. Salt is a good primary and in a solution, stainless gets ate.

Get a blue 3M scotch bright pad and some mag wheel polish and work all of the spots out. If the spots are deep use sand paper: 1000 grit, 3000, grit, Red scotch bright, gray scotch bright, Blue scotch bright then a cloth with the mag polish. It will have a Mirror finish.

I use the mag polish every month and it looks like a Mirror! Everyone thinks I keep getting new mufflers! I also have a lift, so I don't need to get under it!
