Outstanding write up. It tells me that the way I did mine with the premium butyl I bought means I will be doing it again in the not so distant future but I already knew that. Now I know how to go about it the next time. I wish I could get the M1 here but from what I can see I can only get it from the West coast at a cost of 12.00 a tube.................................. plus 14.00 a tube for shipping!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you all.
Wrigleys, when I wrote this I could not recall who recommended the Chemlink. I've edited my post to give you the credit.
I've yet to try it, but on paper it would seem to be the go to product for our needs.
Now if I could get this damn drawing to load........

As one that is going to be doing this in the near future, I really appreciate the write up.  My windows have sucked the seals between the double panes into the interior of the window.  That is something I have to address.  There is a company in Arkansas that specializes in this repair but they are pricey and I would have to get there.  I would like to try to tackle it myself.  There are youtube videos that show how and sell the needed supplies.
