Baggage compartment sealent

I removed the drip cap, door and frame of my baggage/hose compartment from my '59 the other day. The old sealent against the body of the trailer looked more like a putty than Vulcem. It came off in one long strip for the most part. Did they use something other than Vulcem then? It almost looks like they put Vulcem on the part, let it set up a bit then applied the part. Any ideas?

Butyl tape will seal up the frame to shell connection. It is available at any RV store.
After installation apply Parbond sealer to the frame edge as a secondary sealer> Parbond also makes the seam look better.
