Rust in Windshield channel...

Hi,
It's me again with more body work questions. Yesterday, I removed the windshield from my '56 to look at the rust I knew was under part of it. The GOOD news is the rust that needs repair is small and limited to the passenger side where the glass is curved. The lip is still there and not disintigrated, but does need repair. The BAD news of course, is I'm not experienced enough to know the best way to repair it. My novice approach would be to wire wheel it down, POR 15 it, and then use a metal-type filler or putty to fill and shape the pits. If the repair is best done by welding, then I will have to have a professional do that....any idea of a ballpark cost of that? Again, this is not a show car, but I want to address what I need to while it's a shell of a truck. The attached pics are from both sides (in/out), of the area.
As always, thanks for the responses,
James

Okay, it says the pic size it too big, not sure how to size them to fit on here. So if no trouble, I'll add them to the journal. I will figure out how to size them and add some after I clean up area with wire wheel.

I think I got the pics resized. The only way I figured was to email them to myself as a smaller size....I KNOW there's a simpler way, I just don't Know what it is..

You should do a search on here about it, Or if you check out Powerrodsmike his photo gallery has some picks of a window he was working on. He might even have some info in his ptoject journal worth a shot.

Blast and if just pitted then use fiberglass short strand filler.

Never used that but I use the fiberglass on all welded and rus repair like this. The short strand is user friendly unlike long strand.

Okay, so you're talking about regular fiberglass/resin type repair?

How well would evercoat Metal 2 Metal work? I was told it is the closest thing to lead. I had a little less rust in my channel but where I had it, it was pitted through to pin holes. I blasted them then welded the pinholes shut.

Metal to metal is a great filler I have used a lot of it and sands great but it has polyester resins and uses a MEKP activator its not all metal or lead I would first sandblast the window channel to see if there are any rust holes if not then use the Metal 2Metal to fill the pits

How well would Metal 2 Metal work at fixing pinhole rust in lower quarters? is it that durable? My lower rear quarters were rusting through from the inside out due to water getting in the trunk and debris that settled down in the gap at the trunk extentions. From the outside the quarters looked rock solid with just a handfull of rust holes the size of a pencil lead. From the inside you could see that they were pitted bad.
