What caulk to use here

Need to caulk this. I have a bunch of Dicor lap sealant is it suitable for this?
I think I really want something clear though. Any suggestions

I use a Dow Corning 733 on the outside. It is UV stabilized. Somewhere I have a document from the old CC newsletter that indicated CC used this in production.

Link to Amazon.

Hope this helps,
Brian

I used 100% silicone. the thing is use electrical tape on each side of the seam then working very quickly push the caulk into the seam so its smooth . Silicon skins very quickly which is why it has to be worked quickly. I usually have a helper install the caulk and i finish right behind. 15 minutes or so pull the tape off in a way that causes the tape to shear the edge. I cut out what i can before application.
My go to caulk-sealant is polyurethane based but i like the silicon for the joints.
Another spot to keep an eye on is the joint over the shades.
