You may have used the term "silicone" generically to refer to caulk, but if you are using silicone, I just want to mention that it is terrible stuff around any kind of body or paint work. It leaves a nearly-inpenetrable residue that absolutely repels any attempts to remove it or paint over or near it.

I realize that the horse may be out of the barn on many of your sealing projects, but it sounds like you have more to do, so maybe you can avoid the problem on your yet-to-do projects.

When you go to remove the existing silicone (prior to painting), be aware that it is easy to spread the contamination around with something like sandpaper. It's better to try to remove as much as you can "in isolation."

Sorry to sound negative, but silicone brings it out in me

No Problem. We all want to do things the right way the first time. That is another reason why this forum is great. Thank you for the info. BTW: I did use paintable caulk not silicone. Cheers
