Exhaust Manifold - C-Tec Flange rust removal

I have a C-TEC exhaust/turbo manifold which I am removing shortly and want to removal the ghastly rust which is on 'both flanges' (head & turbo) due to the material being mild steel.

Any DIY thoughts as to the best way to make it look half tidy once again? The only thing I'm thinking of is rubbing it down and using heat resistant spray paint even if it only lasts a year or two.

Cheers all.

Is there a paint that would withstand the temperature? I think blast it and get a proper coating on it expensive but will look and keep heat in.
