16 Oct 2007 [z3rides] Z Rag Top pulling out of the Rear Window Gasket

I actually ended up using "Clear" GE Silicone II. It is a high quality, flexible, mildew resistant silicone. I had the entire top portion to fix on my Z and it only took about 5 minutes to complete. I didn't get so elaborate with masking anything off, just cut the silicone tip so that I got a reasonably small bead from it. Lifted the Rag top out of the way the entire length, laid the caulk and pushed the Rag top back under the rubber window gasket with a small screwdriver. Looks great!
I use Zaino for the paint, Meguiars or BMW cleaner for the plastic window, but check out the Favorite Products page for some other products people like to use for various advantages.
