Leak from hatch hinges ZJ

Howdy, I'm new to the forum. Not my first jeep though. 98 ZJ with 157k. Leaking from hatch hinge area just below roof. I just bought this vehicle and want to restore it to daily driver condition, the previous owner coated the area concealed by the hatch with flex seal but it still leaks. I can see openings in the flex seal where it likely ran through rusted out holes around the hinges. I can see water drip through the inside trim below the hinges when I water test from the roof. I know flex seal is not the best answer here, it may be the worst. I'm not afraid of doing the job correctly, I'd like some advice from someone who has dealt with this problem before. It's a Texas vehicle, no other rust on the body. i will be removing the flex seal tomorrow. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
