What goes in these gaps?

These have been this way since I did the rebuild. There is not enough free play in any of the components to close the gaps. I think the long opening by the t-piece may have had some kind of gasket but I don't remember. How did the factory fill these voids?

Automotive seam sealer. It gets hard but is still a little flexible. Very strong stuff. If the gap is too wide you can use some foam rope first and then the sealer.

Any recommendations for specific seam sealers for a gap this big? There seems to be an endless variety available.

I go to the Auto paint store and get it. I don't have any right now and forget the name. It comes in a regular tube and a smaller squeeze one. I think I have also seem them in Wal-mart but do not know the quality of that brand.

Tiger seal.

Although, when I built my 110, these gaps didn't appear... check everything is lined up OK

Just rebuilt the floors in my 110. I used a multipurpose 3m sealer that comes in long strips. Doesn't harden and can be balled up and molded into gaps, sticks like the bizness. I'll repost specifics when I go out tonight, was recommended for my series by folks and works great, easy to use since you can use your fingers to manipulate.

It's called 3M Strip Caulk.
