Newbie skin help

A newbie here with a wild hair to renovate a 67 overlander 26- the interior was gutted and I have removed the interior panels and insulation. What a mess! I am noticing what appears to be corrosion on the panels especially at the curves- I also noticed at the end caps on the inside of the panels it looked to be coated with some type of heavy silver paint- my question (which I have many!) is there something I can clean the corrosion with and what can I apply to the panels to help with sealing the exterior from the inside, i.e., like the front panels? thanks for any and all advice.

Welcome to the forums. A picture would go along way in identifing the type and severity of the corrosion and the proper steps to take in cleaning or repairing.
