body filler vs. seam sealer

I have a short body seam from the front of the rear quarter panel to the rocker panel. I picked out all the old 40+ year old seam sealer. Wondering if I can just use filler or glaze to fill the seam. Maybe the seam seal would provided better corrosion protection from the inside out? Epoxy will be going into the seam first BTW.

seam sealer.....

Hi,i would put down at least 2 coats of epoxy primer,then mask both sides of seam,and use seam sealer,use your finger and force it into crack (or seam) ,Eastwood has a good seam sealer,the bondo will crack,the seam sealer is a little flexible,and,you can paint over it,use a wet finger to smooth the sealer.
