Removing paint from exhaust


Does anyone know if any shops in the Houston area that would be able to remove paint from my exhaust? The previous owner painted it black, it's actually a pretty good job, but I'm wanting that stainless steel look back. Or is there something I can do myself to remove it?

I have whats called a "crud thug" and basically its a wire wheel that spins on a pneumatic tool.... its designed to remove cosmoline/sealer/paint without significantly damaging the metal below it.

it *will* leave swirl and scuff marks, but works well. I use it to clean areas when I do subframe reinforcement or welding on painted surfaces.
