    unfortunately welds do rust, its the nature of the beast. If they are not leaking your good. If there are leaks
    and the pipes are still solid. Grind the old weld and re weld. Otherwise nothing to worry about.

    If there are no leaks …
    You can simply clean off the surface rust them apply some high temperature primer and paint to help slow the process.

    Here’s a closeup do you think this needs grinding? As I have no idea I tried to wire wheel it with drill but can’t get anymore

    Might try a hand held wire brush, tough to work a powered wire wheel into those tight places.
    Might also try a rust converter prior to any high temp primer and paint.

    looks like pin holes are happening. Since the exhaust is out. Call a local muffler shop and bring them the exhaust
    and have them fix the welds.
