Rusty Door Handle Pockets

The door pockets on the exterior part of the doors on my ST are very rusted in the corners, one has a couple holes rusted through. I'm getting ready to repaint my truck and wondering what to do about this area. It looks like I could drill out the rivets and replace the whole pocket or maybe I could just get the holes filled? What would y'all recommend? I've attached pics of the rust damage.

Take the pockets and the door frames and the door top caps off of the doors, have them blasted and galvy (or painted) and reassemble. If you do not, your new paint will be ruined when that stuff rusts through and corrodes the aluminium skin from behind.
