I am currently working on cleaning up some trim pieces  and need some information.  The roof line drip rails (73 GTS) has what appears to be some type of caulk/sealant in the inner part that goes against the roof rail to seal it.  Does anyoine know what product works best to replace this with?  Mine was mostly all dried up, cracking and missing in many areas after  the trim was removed from the car.  Thanks - Dave

that black messy nasty goop AKA buytl rubber was used a lot  Confused i'd probably go with a urethane seam sealer there may be other things to use too...
