All the 3M stuff I've seen is tan, not black like the factory stuff on my car. And it also seems to get hard, as in brittle.

Eastwood's Rubberized seam sealer is pretty good, although I believe it is made by 3M also. They list it in black. Check is out at www.eastwoodcompany.com, item #31115Z

I asked my dad about this the other day. (He works at Dearborn Assembly in charge of water leak and wind noise testing) I asked if he could "aquire" some factory sealer. It turns out they apply it all by robot from drums now. He said the best thing off-the-shelf was black urethane roof sealer from Lowe's or Home Depot. It should be available in tube or and small bucket.

Boy am I glad to hear you say that. On another mustanger's advice I used some seam sealer from Home Depot that is designed for sealing gutters. Messy black stuff, but it'll do and cost was less (+ no shipping cost or wait) than Eastwoods. Dickson

Urethane won't collect water will it? I know Silicone is bad news for sealing seams to keep water out. Kory

I just bought some black 3M sealer last night from WalMart. Cost about $3 for a tube.

Are you talking about Henrey's roof sealer? The stuff that comes in a blue can?
