Best products to use on century old roof

I'm planning on treating the old corregated metal roof on my 100+ year-old homestead. Should the rust be treated prior to putting any roof coatings on? I was planning on coating it with the thick aluminum/fiberglass coatings that you can get at Lowes in the 5 gal. containers and applying it with roller & brush, but are there other products you would recommend? This will be a big undertaking and I will have to rent a work platform with a boom to do it, so I would like to get this right the first time!

You may wish to do a google search for metal roof restoration. Please understand though that most of our work is with new roofs, not older ones.
