if you want black M-1, check here - https://www.greenbuildingsupply.com/...hesive-Sealant
They're a dollar more and charge for shipping...
Greenbuildingsupply also has other sealants/adhesives that may work, but color choice is more limited...e.g. AFM Safecoat as a 500psi+ shear strength.

I bought some gray from concreteexchange and have not used it yet.
FYI - acetone works great for cleanup of M-1.

It looks like the shipping is pretty steep with them. How does Dow Corning 732 look? They have it in black and clear on Amazon, and it seems like it'll do the trick. I'd prefer black M-1Öif it wasn't out of stock at that first place you linked.

Iím sure the fancy tube stuff is good, but butyl tape is cheap and available many places. And based on door windows Iíve removed at junkyards, holds up really well even many years later. Has worked well on my installs so far, too.

I would agree but would add the butyl tape does have a bit of learning curve to its use. From removing the old to placing the new and tightening the bolts to NOT break the glass does take a bit of super excessive carefullness.

And there's no need to over-think or over-spend on the tube stuff---typical exterior grade silicone adhesive/sealant from Lowe's, Home Depot etc etc works very well too--its what I've used a lot of times.

I used black RTV silicone on my pop out windows. About a year ago. So far so good and easy to apply. I believe I followed JWA advice on one of the numerous forums he participates.

I also contribute to Ford Truck Enthusiasts aka FTE.

Frankly I like this site far far better as there are far far more people posting questions about how-to's BEFORE the dig into something and make a complete mess of things "thinking" they know what they're doing.

I used butyl tape without issue. It can be a bit of a pain to deal with since it's so gummy. It does seal very well though.
