<VV> Windshield Area Drain Holes

Those holes are not large enough to pass all the leaves, oak tassells, 
maple seeds, pine needles and what not that gets behind the trim here in 
the east. Then it turns to mulch. Then it rusts away. I'm sure the holes 
did pass rain water when new, but then mother nature gets involved! I 
always fill the area full of sealer to keep the crap from getting next 
to the metal.  You must leave a space next to the clips so the molding fits.

Replaced the doors, driver's door hinge pillar (A-pillar), and front windshield. Did the windshield drain holes contribute to the pillar rust out? Opinions are welcome. In any case, I eliminated these drain holes during the restoration and intend to seal the windshield area to prevent water from entering the windshield lip. I am now re-installing trim items after the body restoration (picture attached).
