Hello:
What would you recomend for the following.
1. What caulking would you use when bolting the fenders back to the fire wall and the sides of the grill?
2. What would you use on the windshield rubber weather seal when you attach the windshield to the top cowl panel?

Thank you.
Wayne.

Wayne, I did not use silicone between fenders and cowl. Silicone may trap water and facilitate rust. I used a black soft cording/flat- strip caulking or polyester fill made by 3M available at auto parts stores. It remains flexible and I have not had any rust issues.

I use the same body caulking material. Works great to seal the bottom of the bulkhead too.
