Best way to fix rusted area?

I have a camaro with t-tops and around where the weather stripping goes it was rusted. Not terribly bad but I blasted it and it's pitted. How can I fix this, it's really not possible for me to replace the metal so would i use a filler to fill the rust pits, poly primer or what? It really won't be seen but I want to fix it without filler blowing out or primer blowing out. Thanks. I was thinking the filler with metal particles in it but not sure if thats the best way.

Put some epoxy primer on it, fill pits with body filler on top of primer, sand with some 180, and reapply epoxy primer, and you should have something to work with. Before putting the bondo on though, scuff up the primer with some 180.
