I hate those darn window vipers ;)  They're so distracting, trying to
bite you while you're driving!  
Sorry couldn't resist.

I replaced the same gaskets, mine were leaking too.

Some paints are specifically designed to bind to rust so you don't have
to go to bare metal.  I know that POR-15 and Corroless fall into this
category, I don't know much about Hammerite

Metal plates?  I'm not sure that's the best way to quiet the car down, I
would think the cheap rubberized undercoating that comes in the aerosol
spray cans works quite well.
