Default Applying Rust Convertors on Jeep Exhausts

So the exhaust assembly of the CJ is already showing a nice coating of surface rust and some pits, which I am sure with time will go deeper.

Wanted to check if anyone had experience of applying rust convertors (you apply the chemical (essentially phosphoric acid) and it converts the red rust into a black sandable/primer ready oxide) to a jeep exhaust. Asking the question because the exhaust runs much hotter than regular surfaces.

If not what are possible alternatives for preventive maintenance for the exhaust.

ps: Examples of rust convertors are are Rustcon, Por 15 and Mar Hyde
(MAR-HYDE RUST CONVERTER - JCWhitney)


Inputs appreciated!

Give it a good clean up like sand blasting, add a layer of good anti rust with good heat absorption capability. Thats all i can suggest.

Saw this product and looks interesting, maybe you can search for reviews.
