Rust at rear by dump valves

I recently purchase a 27' 1982 excella. The dump valves were not shutting off completely so I removed the rear bumper hoping I could get access to the shut off valves. What I found was a lot of rust on the frame and what was apparently a metal sheet between the rear plastic tray and the holding tanks. Any suggestions on how to replace the rusted metal sheet and repair the other damage would be greatly appreciated.
