You guys are awesome! Thank you so much! I believe everything inside is indeed original. So I'll stop panicking!

Gene, what about the 3m 4200? I have done a bunch of reading (this site mainly) about caulking after the butyl tape.
I know silicone is a no go on fg. I did buy some butyl tape and 3m 4200 to do a test run on my truck canopy. I had a few leaking windows and it seems to have done the trick.

Kai, that beeswax tip is fantastic! And thank you for the butyl temperature tip.

Roger, thanks for the check list! And battery tip! And I'll try that heat gun. Though I think it may have shrunk beyond return.

Linsey, proper bedding installation of the windows with the butyl is all you really need. There are some here that have used some kind of sealant after using the butyl but I think it was for looks only. Maybe they'll chime in .

4200 is half the strength of 5200 and allows you to remove what you're trying to seal. Personally I would stick with just butyl. I like the beeswax fix too. Very clever.
