Recommended materials for cabover re-build

Hi everyone,

There are many on this forum who have rebuilt their Class C overheads. I've just started mine (a 27' 1991 Winnebago Warrior). The question I have has to do with materials. The overhead was rebuilt by a local RV shop 7 years ago and they didn't use any type of flashing tape under the moldings where the horizontal and vertical panels come together. The picture shows a gray tape used by Winnebago, and where the local guy touched it, there is none. I am familiar with flashing tapes for installing windows in homes and thought about using them under the moldings, since these tapes are flexible and self-sealing. I have used Eternabond on my (aluminum) roof seams and it has done a wonderful job of keeping the water out.

Two questions: 1) can you recommend motor home specific seam-sealing materials (tapes, ribbons, etc) that I should use in re-assembly?

2) What type of adhesive should I use to adhere the fiberglass skin to the replacement panels?

Here are a couple pics (more to come):

Cabover

Thanks!

Tim

better pictures

You can see clearly where the first repair didn't use any type of flashing tape or putty under the molding. The gray flashing tape is what was used by the manufacturer.
