    This goes around edges of windshield easily since it is a thin consistency. Sealed out the leaks on the first application.

        Saw the positive comments on this product and gave it a try. Very glad I did; it totally sealed up the leaks around my windshield. Used an online coupon code to save a little more $$$. It dispenses sort of like a thick super glue (but thinner than regular silicone from the hardware store). Great product.

          I have used it under the trunk lid where the joining body panels are factory caulked, but were cracked and leaking rain water into the trunk. It worked great stopping all the leaks !!! I also use it to water prof my work boots. works way better than silicone boot spray.

            I use this to seal Saturn sunroofs for GOOD! They all leak like a siv. This stuff seals good and is very thin so it can seep into the cracks.

                My zipper on my boat canvas leaks terribly. I was thinking of using this along the zipper. Do you think this application will work? and this does not dry hard, correct?

                  No, you do not have to remove the windshield. This product is used around the edges.

                  I'm restoring a 1970 Pontiac Catalina 4 door sedan. The GM cars of this era were know for leaking window seals. I have used this product as a permanent solution to the problem. I wouldn't recommend it for repairing cracks in windshields. You should Google that problem and find the appropriate product.
