200Tdi thermostat swap

I need to swap out my sticks open thermostat on my 200Tdi. What is the consensus as to the gasket.
Gasket only?
RTV and the gasket?
RTV only?
Flour and water paste like a moonshiner?

Thanks!

Flour and water paste only if you want to make a Matzoh (Strength!) gasket.

I would use bondo.
