IMO restoring a rusty 25G is flirting with disaster.  Depending on age and
extent of rusting, you could be risking a lot climbing a tower like this.

Other than minor surface rust the presence of heavier rust could suggest non-visible interior rust that could lead to an unexpected collapse.

Other than a costly fiber optic camera inspection how might one
establish the interior integrity of used and rusty tower sections?
