Sealing tape

Anyone have a source for the sealing tape used where the tub/seatbox/floor panels/bulkhead all meet?

I was thinking of just using weather stripping from Lowes/Home Depot but its a bit thick and looks like it might trap water.

I take my truck apart so often I have been using vaseline to form a seal. Eliminates any chance of corrosion due to dissimilar metals. Works pretty well. Series trucks used a tar like putty.

I use the truck cap seal stuff from Home Depot, at least on the floors panels and transmission tunnel; I haven't had to remove the seat box yet. It's the thinner gray stuff. It squishes and fits nicely. No leaks yet. It also does a decent job of sealing old seat bracket holes under thicker mats.

Thanks...guess its time to go to the Home Depot, again! Took the head liner out last night (completly) and I'm going to tape the door seams at the angles under the seals. That was an interesting job. found an inspection sticker with a date 10-29-1996 that was cool!
