Grandpa's steamer trunk

The panels are very rusty. Looks like they're made out of tin. There are wooden slats on the outside that I would like to restore as well. I don't want to make it look "like new", but I would like to try to remove some of the rust. Should I used naval jelly for the rust. And if I do should I be careful not to get it on the wood slats? My mom just started sanding the WHOLE thing the other day and I felt this was the wrong thing to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
