Thoughts on how to fill pinholes in a disk brake backing plate...

I have a general resto question... This is for a disc brake backing plate. think 20-22 guauge sheet metal. The plates were in the junk yard and have rusted thin. ...rusted thru in some areas, and pin holes in others. I can't get replacements. I am bout to bead blast them. ...hopefully there is enough good metal left for that!

So I figure that my options are leading, lab metal and/or possibly soldering. I plan to prime and paint them afterwards. Any thoughts or suggestions?

There is too much contour to completely re-fab replacements.
