Ditto on using flexible sealers. When I worked in the glass shop this is all we ever used. CR Laurence Windshield and Repair sealant. It will NEVER dry out. The trouble with most urethanes or silicones--the hardware store variety anyway, is they will eventually harden and pull away from the gasket, causing a leak. When that happens there is no amount of clean-up and re-sealing that will work. You'll have to install a new gasket and seal it properly. Now today there ARE professional silicone windshield sealants available, but you won't find them at Home Depot or Lowes. I believe Sikasil makes them... not sure, but they make a lot of specialty silicones.
