rust in seams

I have some rust in seams where door skin is wrapped around door frame. How do I treat this area?
I think I'll remove factory seam sealer, use wire brush on drill to get rust off, epoxy prime/seal, seam seal and paint. Is this right approach?

Use a wire wheel cup on a grinder instead of a drill motor, it makes it easier to get into the seam. You could use a rust converter spray from POR15 to get any rust you miss.

Be sure to clean and seal the pinch on the inside of the door cavity too. make sure you don't plug up the door drain holes though.
