    Default What replaces Quicksilver Perfect Seal?

    Hi,

    I cant get the Quicksilver Perfect Seal locally. I cant even find it on the Internet. Please, let me know what can serve as a replacement? Or where to buy the Perfect Seal.

    Thanks!

    I think NAPA aviation (brush on, non-hardening) is the same stuff, just the NAPA store brand.

    The stuff at Napa is permatex with the Napa name on it. They still say permatex on them too atleast the ones near me do.
