    With the really high winds we had here last week, something hit the driver's side rain gutter (gutter above the door) on my 91 burb...pretty much trashing the gutter :mad: At any rate, I got a replacement, but when I removed the old one, theirs some kind of gasket material with some glue or some kind of double sided tape between the body and the rail mounting flange. I had to use a screw driver the wedge the rail off after removing the screws.

    An ideas as to what this material is :confused: ?

    Could be 3M "VHB" which is a double sided tape used for all sorts of stuff. Like mounting the side panels of those really spendy pusher RV's, and in machining thin sheetmetal parts. My local machine shop supply house carries it.

    i bet if its real sticky and like 1/2 dry caulk its body seam sealer. any body shop supply house has it. but it would be cheeper to go to a body shop and ask for the little bit you need to install that.

    Thanks for the responces...looks a lot like doubled sided tape. Ironically, LMC lists replacement gutters, but shows nothing put between the gutter and the body.
