rust under the door gaskets

When installing a roof rack the other day on my '01 156sw (without toprails) I discovered a fair amount of rust under the door gaskets. This was surprising, since I inspected the car pretty thoroughly before I bought it a fortnight ago and found no significant rust anywhere I checked.

My plan is to pull off all the door gaskets, scrape off the loose rust, and then apply one of those "rust-away" brush on fixes which I have found to be reasonably effective in the past.

The door gaskets are in good condition. I haven't priced out a replacement set, but it doesn't seem necessary to replace them.

My question is: What adhesive should I use to put them back on? And, what can I use to repair tears in the gasket material? I stupidly damaged a gasket when installing the roof rack, and expect that I will also suffer a tear or two during removal.
