Question Help with windows (revisited)

Hi, I still can't post photos on here, but I posted some pictures of both sides of my bus windows on Instagram. I was wondering if a heat gun and razor scraper would be sufficient in taking these windows out to clean and reseal.

Also bought some caulk (didn't realize there were so many kinds) I ended up getting "Dynaflex Ultra advanced exterior sealant for Window, Door, Siding & Trim". Did I end up buying the right kind?

The Instagram is Double_Decked_Out. Sorry again that I can't post the pictures on here.

Dynaflex Ultra advanced exterior sealant for Window, Door, Siding & Trim is a Laytex based sealant.

Another member chime in about laytex caulk. I haven't used laytex on our conversion. Mostly polyurethane.

When reinstalling our windows, we used a clay based buytl-tape between the Steel bus & Aluminum window frame. Sikaflex 227, polyurethane based, on the exterior seam.

+1 vote for using Butyl tape and Sicaflex.
