Default Rear Door Rust

I noticed some dirt & grime at the rear door gasket, and when i tried scraping it out, soon realized that it was more than grime. Moisture held in the gasket channel had created corrosion.
I checked the service manual and the parts schematic to see how the threshold assembly was put together and began taking things apart. this is what the rear door threshold looked like prior.

I am always hesitant to tear clips and retainers apart, not knowing how they actually fasten, but I was able to pry the 6 or so clips up with a screwdriver and they just snap out and back in so no worries.
