G5S Minarelli V1 stock pipe (pictured) is in fine condition structurally, but could use a serious rust-removal facelift. I want this sucker to shine.

I took a hefty layer off with Evapo-Rust, but I'm still not getting the "so-clean-you-could-eat-off-of-it" results I was hoping for. Next step is sand blasting, which I think should really power through the heavier stuff, but after that is where my head starts to spin.

My Q is this: With so many damn body fillers/fast-etching sprays/rust converters out there, what's the best way to fill in the pits on this guy and restore the surface/chrome (that isn't going to break the bank)?

I have no idea where to start. If someone could point me towards a good tutorial (or just give me a step-by-step with your favorite products,) I'd be happier than a pig in shit.
