What I used was Pro Adhesives "Strip Caulk - Black". Comes in a twin strip roll. It pliable and works like clay. You will have to "form" it to the sizes and shapes you need. Made by Martin Senour and sold by NAPA, P/N 4424

Petes solution is the best one, but I just used black Silicone RTV to seal them back up after taking them apart for cleaning. So far, at least, no water or dirt has gotten back in.

Ditto what Jeff stated... I used the black adhesive RTV Silicone and it has held up great so far.

Thanks guys. Without this board I would probably, no, most likely not even have a running TC.
