Can you post a couple of close-up photos?
I only know this type of hat rim, so I can't say.
Do the bolt heads look like carriage bolt heads?
Oh wait . . .
I think you're saying that there's a tight seal between the squared bolt passage and the hat channel innards. It seems to me that there are leakage points from within the bolt passage to the channel insides, probably filled with rust too.
Anyway, on the backside of your tire and rim, where the squared bolt boxed piece that's fixed in the channel, meeds the rim at one of the bolt passage corners, there's where I would drill a tiny hole for a spray wand. One could even seal that little hole with something before putting the bolt back in.
But if your hat channels look as good and solid as I thought mine looked and felt (dispite the pitting) don't even worry about putting anything in the channel . . . just dry it out and work at sealing your bolt holes so no more water gets in.
My bolts looked like nightmare Alice too but after a lot of work with wire wheel on bench grinder, chipping hammer and grinder finishing disk, they came up nice. I primered them too.
