Correct drip cap(eye brow) sealant?

I am re-sealing the drip cap(some may call it an eye brow) above the entry door on my 2002 Safari. The previous owner decided to use double sided foam tape. I have been finding a lot of stuff that I am having to re-do that he did. Is the correct stuff to use butyl tape or something along the lines of trem pro?

Thanks.

On both of ours we used butyl tape. Once installed and tightened, I cut the edge of the butyl back a hair and seal the edge with Silver Parbond. Kinda belt and suspenders but don’t want drip marks below the drip cap. I think whatever you do is better than what you have. Good luck

Thanks. This is what I was thinking about doing. It's good to know I'm not the only sane one out there.

Those who know me question my sanity. I do get lucky sometimes when I’m in the renovation mode. I really do like the Parbond for a lot of places needing sealant. Just takes a little practice to get it to finish neatly. Take care

Hey, we all have a serious case of aluminumitis. Sanity is optional when stricken with that condition. I’ll admit the only thing “normal” around my family is a setting on the dryer.

Butyl tape and Acr-y-l in a pump works. If you still have leaks over any doors or window use Capt. Tilley's, put it on in small amount every 24 hours until it quits disappearing (it is filling the crack).
