Sealant Question

Looking to pull out the factory rear view camera above the rear marker lights to replace that unit with a Garmin. Any suggestions on what sealant to use for that installation? The factory sealant appears more flexible than Dicor, but much neater than silicone....

Thanks

Iím interested in doing this eventually as well. Our factory camera has water in it and unusable now.
