Unhappy If I seal the heater core leak into the cab where will the coolant go?

I've had the dreaded drip-drip-drip of coolant onto the front passenger floor for 2 years. I dont have time, money or energy to replace the core. If I put JB Weld around the little bolt-head where its coming into the cab, where will the coolant build up and go to from there? Is there an overflow port that it will just spill outside the vehicle? Or will it just come out somewhere else inside the cab?

Thanks.

Have you considered disconnecting the heater core hoses from under the hood and routing them into themselves? This will bypass the heater core and allow the coolant to flow as it usually would.
