    I would personally use "Marine Grade Sikaflex"..

    Possibly cheaper stuff on the market,, But I have all way`s used it on boats... and nothing to put that sort of stuff through it`s paces than a marine environment,,, what with the tossing & twisting on boats..(y)

    Sikaflex is great unless you ever want to get the thing apart again, what was used originally setting sealant or non setting mastic.

    It looks like a setting sealent and is now not sticking to to bodywork and apears to be allowing damp ingress. Thanks for reply will try silkaflex . Cheers
