I didn't want to sound like a jerk at all, i am one of those guys that at one time got attached to my cars, but as i grew in this hobby i realised that rust can not be stopped unless the area was replaced from seem to seem like factory.
I hope that's all you have for an issue for sure. Rust likes to hide.
Once you do the sandblasting, you will have a way better view at deciding what to do.

Only down side that I see is that If I ever wanna take it off it's gonna take for ever lol. The paint of POR15 turns to a hard ceramic.
