I had a small bit of cancer under the paint, until I went to grind it off. I ended up with a 1"x2" hole in the windshield pillar. After digging out some old putty the factory had put inside there (which probably caused this whole problem in the first place), I cut out a small bit of sheet metal to the shape/size of the hole, and welded it in.

Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The
right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in,
no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be
neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't
reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process...
Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially,
there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...
