And make sure you do not leave any rust on the inside , if it is rusted though and many holes we use to call it body cancer, if you miss some or don't cut it all out the cancer will return, (and worst than before )

You might consider POR-15 and their fine mesh to bridge gaps.  I don't have too much love for the product, but in a covered section, under the rubber, it makes sense.

I had the last windshield in Omaha installed last week for $250. Just cracked it minutes ago trying to install trim clips. This thing is so teetering on being dumped for a loss.
