CJ Liftgate Rust

Just bought a CJ hard top for my YJ on the liftgate there are 2 large spots of rust on the inside. Any ideas of how to fix them easily. I was thinking of using wire to stip rust and paint over it. Any idea of what to us to fill the holes easily?

Best thing to do is order a fiberlass replacement and not worry about it again.

Are they that high? wow, I've never bought one so I wasnt for sure. Actually even if you did spend that it would still be worth it considering tops in good shape will bring 600 or so....at least they do down here
