Seam Sealer Around Inside of Fuel Inlet 1968 Beetle


After some advice from restorers. Inside the luggage compartment, I have removed the seam sealer where the fuel inlet meets the front quarter panel as there was rust under the sealer. I have wire brushed and treated the rust. The seam sealer VW applied seemed to trap water that leaked through the seam from around the fuel flap area. Question is should I replace the seam sealer?
Cheers

I would use Stop Check which comes in a tube form and not as messy as the spray on goo that VW used

It can be squirted into the gaps between the two metal surfaces then wipe off excess with Prepsol much neater job before spraying the vehicle

Thanks! But when I Google Stop Check seam sealer, I don't get any good results.
Does it have another name?

Wayne

let me check its Drip Check found on Ebay might be at Supercheap make sure you squirt into the cavity wipe of excess with prepsol to make a clean seal joint will stop moisture getting in between the 2 panels much neater than the spray on gunk
