Body capping question

After just about a year of sitting on them I've finally gotten the time to paint the replacemet body cappings I've got for my ROW 90 HT. I've read through several posts but am coming up short on detail around seals, if any, in this process. As far as I can tell there are seals between the cappings and the side/window panels (I've got PN 333487 from AllMakes4X4)... in other words, these appear to go on TOP of the cappings. Are there seals of any kind that go BELOW the cappings, on top of the tub? Use panel adhesive??
Many thanks!

There is usually a sticky foam type of seal between the lip (on the top of the bodywork) and the bottom of the capping.

I can't find it on microcat, but whenever i've refitted them, I just use a bead of body panel sealer, like tigerseal or similar.(that said, you'll never get them off again... the factory sticky pads are hard enough to remove!)
