Best way to fix this

What would be the best way to fix these holes on the cab roof? The drip rail is solid and there is no damage to the inside of the cab. I don't want to replace the cab roof if I don't have to.

Cut it out, remove all signs of rust, fabricate a metal patch and weld.

In the drip rail, I believe there is sealer which will melt with heat.....Gonna have to remove that to weld.......

I'm no body man, but I wonder if lead would work in this situation?

It really is just that easy,,, Poncho62 was correct also, many vehicles use seem sealer in the drip well. A wire wheel on a drill or angle grinder will clean that out in a jiffy.

You can warm that sealer up with a small propane torch and it'll be a lot easier getting it out.It can be very thick in some cars..
