POR-15 and seals

Sorry, posted to the wrong forum, moderator, please move to W126


I ordered some POR-15 to seal the holes in the wheel well from the arches that I took off.
I also have some light rust around the sunroof edges that I was planning to sand down and repaint.
Now, if POR-15 works as well as it's advertised, I am wondering whether I could just pull back the sunroof seal far enough to apply the POR-15 treatment and be done?
I am not too worried about POR-15 itself but how about the Metal-Ready stuff? Will this harm the felt seal since it seems to be some kind of acid?
I know removing the seal, sanding and painting would be the "right" way to fix it but since removing and installing the seal seems to be total PITA, I might consider this shortcut...

Any thoughts?
