recaulking cap joints

I have a 2003 Seabreeze and the front and rear roof cap joint sealant is discolored, cracked and has lots of layers of sealant from previous patches and repairs. I'd like to strip down sealant to joint and reseal. Have been lead to believe this is big job. Has anyone done this or can recommend how to do?

I would take the old caulk off and use Eternabond tape

I did it and it wasn't a very big job.

Remove the old caulk with a sharp putty knife, clean the area with mineral spirits, wipe dry with a clean cloth. Use self leveling lap sealant on the flat surfaces and non sag sealant on the vertical areas.
I did mine in about 3 hour per end. It was done last spring and i have had no problems. It took less than four tubes of sealant. Less than $40.00.

I used Eternabond tape on the front and rear caps, that stuff is excellent. Just make sure you get it on straight cause it's nearly impossible to get off.
