Hi, Does anyone out there have the tool(similar to a caulk gun) for applying the two part drip edge sealer. This stuff comes in a cartridge and is mixed in the nozzle. Applied like caulk. I'm looking to borrow ar rent the tool. I foungd on for sale, but they run about $200. I will only need this once and thought I would see if someone had invested in tool. Thanks
David

A friend of mine just bought one. I'll ask him where and price. It's intended use is panel adhesive for newer cars. The nozzles are definitely one time use.

I used 3M Flexi-clear seam sealer and a regular caulking gun on mine. Cut the nozzle tip very small.

Go to your local Collison Center, Ask if you can "rent one" for the weekend! I'd try a smaller shop if there is one close by.

Just tried this and was happy with results -- use regular
caulking gun. Evercoat epoxy OEM type seam sealer.

Thanks for the pointers guys. I was thinking of a regular caulk gun, but wasn't sure of a product to use. I will give those a look.

I asked my friend and, if it's the same type tool, he got it at Carquest for $48.
