what's this goop called?

I need to plug a couple of pass through holes in my firewall and I'd like to find some of that mold-able non-permanent stuff that is used to seal seams in american car trunks and so on...anybody know what it is called and where to get some?

I use strip caulk too--it is the best bet to adhere to just about anything but try and clean the area good first. If it gets dirty, toss it. My $10 thin box has lasted for years. You should also use this between body panels (such as the seat box) when reassembling.
