[DML] re cleaning the manifold and y pipe

Hi all

i am looking for advice.

i have removed my air intake manifold which looks a bit crusty.

i have tried (in the UK!) meths, acetone, ajax scouring powder, jiff 
(an abrasive cleaner), scouring pad, white spirit/panel wipe, 
detergent, allow wheel cleaner.
and nothing cleans it.

has anyone any ideas? do i need to bead blast and paint? would the 
beads go into the air ducts (and come out when it it on the engine?)

i want it looing as new as possible. it is off the car.

the same goes for the y pipe.
as far as i can tell it must be surface corrosion, so maybe i do 
need to paint?

i know you can't see the y pipe but it would be nice to get back to 
factory fresh while i am there.
i am also using engine enamel on the valley of death.
was going to use a wire brush on a dremmel to clean there.

any advice would be appreciated.
