the moisture that rusts that area out comes from the cowl vent
there is no 'sealing it' unless you shave the cowl vent
remove all the leaves from the area behind the hinge and clear out the drain
pull the vent covers off and look on top of the shelf above the door
this is where leaves and pine needles gather to rust our trucks into oblivion

you should be able to run a hose into the cowl vent and have it all run out thru the drain forward of the lower hinge
