Received the Eastwood order, looks exactly the same as the Norton strip caulk.

I would much rather use this Eastwood/Norton style strip caulk.  It keeps it's form, is soft and pliable and not stringy/gooey like the 3M.

Would recommend to any of the parts vendors reading this that they may want to consider replacing the 3M product with something like from Eastwood.

Charles,

Is the Eastwood strip caulk adhesive at all?  I need to seal the taillight lens on a Fox body and thinking the Eastwood product might be easier to work with and still do the job?

The Eastwood caulk should be a lot easier to work with.  It isn't sticky/gooey like the 3M product.
