I did mine too. I tired MIG and TIG. Best was the old OA torch. The heat and flame burn everything away first, then come back and lay a bead.

It was messy and 2 years later I had one seam in the rear C pillar start to show through the paint. This was exactly the point where the "stuff" is injected from the wheel well to seal the C pillar.

btw, there is no lead in the system except right at the B pillar joint and where the A pillar ties into the cowl.

The car was noticably quieter at speed without the leading edge by the window frames. I never had any issues with water inclusion.
