No, the screws I'm talking about are on the inside and don't need sealant (they're the screws with the big round washers around them that hold in both adjacent windows).

I use Dynatron-550 for sealant and highly recommend it. Cheapest place for single tubes is Autozone ($15 ea.) or you can get cases of 12 for $150 or so (you will probably use that much and more - I'm easily over 20 tubes already).

Okay, so bus window anatomy is:
Where window meets the bus - bottom
Where window meets the bus - two sides
Corners that seem to have large gaps where water comes in
Edges of the outer sill
Gaskets

So, what do you think of this procedure:
Where window meets the bus - bottom: Butyl tape
Where window meets the bus - two sides: Dynatron-550
Corners that seem to have large gaps where water comes in: Dynatron-550
Edges of the outer sill: Dynatron-550
Gaskets: Dynatron-550

Or .... Ive seen others suggest 3M OEM grade automotive seam sealer or 3M urethane sealer for the corners and vertical ??
