thanks all.

I have some #000 steel wool or maybe it's #0000
I'll give several methods a try in obscure locations before i get into it.

One of the header rings (metal thing under the exhaust nuts) has a break in it. Is this a big deal when I put the exhaust back together or should I just squeeze it in there?

Are you talking break or not a complete circle?

Dat, item 12 (or it might be 13, can't remember the order just now) above is split intentionally. It's the compression ring, and it tightens as the finned nut is tightened.
(also note that the order of assembly is bassackwards in the diagram-- the two tapered rings 12 and 13 obviously go between the finned nut and the head stub)

I put in all new ones on my 95 when I had the exhaust off and they were not fun to install. Get everything to fit while it is still in pieces then install everything...makes the job much easier.

um.... uh... i'll have to look at it again.

Also, I think there was only 1 ring under each exhaust nut. If there's supposed to be two, i guess another item for the list. I'll check again tonight.
