I like sikaflex 721 or 221
Trempro 735 is good too.
You can order both on amazon

Not if you want it to stay put and do it's intended job. Surface prep is key, just like painting a car.

Clean and dry to start, then use either mineral sprits or my favů.carb cleaner but NO ALCOHOL for polyurethane or silane terminated polymer based sealants.

Apply between masking tape if you want a neat job and remove the tape immediately. Clean up with mineral spirits. Practice before starting, as when properly applied, it is NOT easily removable!!

Acryl R or Parbond will penetrate a small opening in a seam better than Trempro 735.

There are other more liquid sealants that will draw into smaller openings.
