This is getting ugly

This is my 88 300TE. The driver's side rear window seal is leaking and created rust along the body. I'm looking for a quick temporary fix until I can get it done right and preped for paint. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks! J.

Duct tape,,,, seriously. That is the cheapest, quickest thing to keep water out of your interior.

scrape it, paint it with por 15, throw on some bondo-glass or kitty hair, sand prime and paint. Total cost around $100. you can get spray paint matched to your paintcode from any automotive paint supply store. More work but this is a better option that duct tape. It will look a hell of alot better and should last for a few years.
