2006 B-Pillar rust

Good Evening guys,

My 2006 Xterra has been a delight to drive for the past 10 years and I've kept it in very good shape. It looks great except for one spot that is rusting. On the passengers side with the front door open, there is rust appearing at the very bottom of the b-pillar, a few inches up from the rocker panel. I've attempted a couple of repairs (cleanup and repaint), but the rust keeps coming through. Clearly moisture is getting inside from the back. Has anyone else experienced this? I'd like to try a full assault repair later this spring.

Is it rusting below the door hinge? Like on the curved part where i think you have one bolt that holds your front fender? If so mine is doing it on driver side and passenger side pretty good and i am going to try to conquer it this spring. Mine looks bad enough tho that when i clean it, i believe i may have to fiberglass it after.

Do you have any pictures so i know if yours is in the same spot? i will get a few pictures of mine tomorrow.
