HI,i dont understand exactly what you are trying to do. are you talking about the rubber the glass goes into? or the metal that is behind the rubber? please explain in more detail,a photo would probably get you more info.

Post a photo, there is no way anyone can give you good advice without seeing exactly what you are talking about. Some rotted areas could be "filled" with something, others it would be a waste of time because it would fail very fast. Others you would have to have it repaired properly or the window won't even reinstall, we need photos. A decent close up, and one showing a larger area of where it is at.

Put new metal in. It's the right way.

I saw somebody fix a very rusted and weakened window channel with fiberglass matting, POR-15, and two part epoxy filler (real good stuff for restorers; strong and waterproof). They painted the window channel with POR-15, and whille it was still wet, used the POR-15 to "glue" the matting over the (many) holes. After curing, he filled it with the epoxy putty and sanded it smooth. It looked pretty good.
