Hey Guys, I'm just about to button up my lower end and was wondering what is the preferred case sealant by everyone. I bought a Permatex anaerobic gasket maker sealer which requires a spray on activator, but I was thinking that maybe the old school Indian head shellac the OE manual suggests would be best. Any thoughts or opinions ?
