Aluminum Corrosion Coating

I am in the process of fabricating a decorative panel to cover a damaged and corroded area on my 55 flying cloud and am wondering if there is some type of primer or other coating which would help reduce the spread of the corrosion? I would want to be able to remove the coating down the road without extreme effort. I am not in a position to replace the panel just yet, but don't want the corrosion to spread to surrounding areas. Thank you for any suggestions.

I'm not sure what your looking for a temporary stop to corrosion ? Like spraying your panel with corrosion x spray ,this is temporary and must be reapplied at least each month , this is like a oil spray ! Any clear coat you put on is going to be some work to remove, I have seen some temporary spray film but can't remember the brand I know at the hospitals they use a similar spray that peels off easy they call it temporary skin,but not sure if it will prevent corrosion on your aluminum panels

As usual a picture would help but a patch over the corrosion is just going to hasten the spread. You could put all sorts of stuff on the corrosion but it won't stop it; to stop aluminum corrosion requires surgery being it grinding or cutting it away. You could remove the corrosion then install your scab patch and revisit the panel repair later on.
