Window & screen question

Brand new to this world, (and officially addicted!!)
We just bought a 1976 Argosy. Planned on simply putting in new flooring and doing a little painting...2 weeks later, she's empty and ready for a complete overhaul!

As I (impatiently) wait for the "big" things to get done, I'm taking care of smaller projects.
I removed the screens, to clean, paint and re-screen.
1. Where do I find the fuzzy lining stuff. I totally removed it all as it was falling apart and super dirty.
2. How can I make the Rusty parts not Rusty? I removed the arms (see pic), these are from the same window?? One is totally rusted and the other is ok. I'd like to make all of them the same. Is there something to soak them in, or paint them with?

I'm a furniture(wood) refinisher so all this metal and plastic is a total learning curve.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm so excited I found this forum, so far just browsing thru, many of my initial questions have been answered.

Welcome!!!

Fuzzy stuff: Fuzzy Seal for Windows and Doors Glue it on with hot-melt glue.

We used a soft wire wheel in a bench grinder to remove the rust. Be careful so you don't eat into the metal as you're cleaning off the rust. If you want to keep them rust-free, paint on a clear lacquer.

Have use a product called EVAPO-RUST for removing rust from woodworking planes and was surprised at how easy it was to use. Non-toxic, no fumes, biodegradable and environmentally safe. Got it on Amazon. And it's reusable. Evapo-Rust Rust Remover - Evapo-Rust Super Safe Rust Remover - Home » Evapo-Rust
