The rust looks like a result of moisture crawling into the seam from the bottom. Sometimes dust, etc.. will collect in the seams and actually draw moisture in and hold it there. Is this a european car? it doesn't look familiar to me. Sometimes you can work a stiff putty knife or scraper between the spotwelds and spread the seam open enough to clean it out well with a spot blaster. Us a hammer and tap that putty knife in easily and carefully and the seam will stretch open between the welds. After cleaning just brush some epoxy primer in there, then apply some urethane seam sealer and then hammer and dolly them closed allowing the extra sealer to squish out-I've done this quite a few times when access allowed.
