I have a 61 Belvedere coupe that I’ve discovered some rust in the rear top window trim area.
It appears to be across the whole window top in rear.
Some in the front windshield also.
Have not removed trim and rubber seals,but I know it’s there.

I have a solid roof from another Belvedere coupe donor car.
My question is will it be easier to fix window channel rust or replace entire roof.
Has narrow seam at rear roof pillar?
I have not done such a swap before but will have someone there who can help with roof swap.

There are some videos on YouTube that show entire roofs being changed. I did one on a 1974 Barracuda that had some serious rust around the windshield and back window. Besides all the welding you have to measure everything and write it down.
