What about the tape they use at the factory to seal the exterior panels at the seams!

I'm pretty sure that's what I used as well. I thought it was double sided, but ???? I couldn't find any, so I must have pitched what I had left. Should be the ticket!

Why not call the factory and ask what tape they are using?

I ended up bagging the idea. I'm trying hard to line up all the original holes to make sure everything goes back lined up and in the way it was. I doubt these skins have been removed and replaced before, but for some reason there are tons of holes in my ribs, making it really hard to figure out which holes to use. If I covered them up I'd have to poke them all out and it would make things difficult and be a ton of work.

If I was going to be in more extreme climates I would worry about it more, but I am going to move on to other battles.

In the plumbing department at HD they have a vinyl/rubber tape 1"& 2" wide - it's about 1/16" thick with adhesive on one side. I use it for many uses around the shop - and used it extensively when I rebuilt my AS - sounds like what you need.

I considered that stuff Silver, but over time that rubber is going to disintegrate and I think you'd end up with a loose rivet mess. Still have the problem with lining up the holes.
