another body rot question

Hi gurus..... I have bubbling going on under my windshield frame where it meets the cowl..... Doesn't look overly bad but I can't weld at all and I am looking for solutions to fix it.... seam sealer? I will be grinding away all the rust and paint and just need a fix.... any ideas.. It is the full length if the jeep and no bigger than half an inch at the biggest spot......

I would venture to guess the rust areas will be worse than they appear once all the paint is cleaned off. I've never tried this product from the por15 folks, but wonder if it would work for you. http://www.por15.com/product.asp?productid=39
I have a lot of pinholes in the bottom of my windshield frame and will be looking at something like that as a repair.

Hey guys new windshield frames are only about $150. The labor to take em off and strip them is not that bad. Only real problem is just getting the paint to match depending on the condition of the paint and how old it is. Just a thought.

Yep, you're going to find that there's a lot more rust there than you think. More than worth it to get a new frame vs. all the labor it'd take to fix yours.

It isn't the windshield frame itself.... it is where the windshield comes down and meets the cowl area.... it is where the seam is.

So the part under the windshield frame? Thats part of the tub then. Maybe it won't be that bad when you get into it. You can sand it and cut the bad stuff out. Then POR15 the stuff left then patch it with sheet metal.
