Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I rebedded my non-opening portlights with white butyl tape and cut off the excess butyl with a razor blade. The butyl gasket is flush and visible.

I am afraid it may attract dirt over time and was wondering if there is anything that can be done about this? Perhaps put a layer of another curing sealant on there?
