I removed my kick panels on my 71 chevelle. There was some putty behind them obviously to prevent liquids from coming in. What was it? Where can it get some or a replacement for when I reassemble my interior.
It was a soft putty, still able to squish it.

Looks exactly like the M-D Building Products caulking cord I bought last year off the A to Z site for about $5.00. Looks like Wally World has it for about $4.00.

It's known in many body shops as "Dum-Dum" putty.

I have used "More-Tite" brand rope putty (this might be by MD). It's white, will takes several courses to build up the thickness. Looks kind of like the original stuff might have looked when new. I have used left over windshield butyl tape, which is not white but works. I have used 3M strip caulk, which is stickier than the More-Tite, is an automotive versus a home product, but more expensive. I believe plumbers putty works, is also white, make a "snake" of the appropriate diameter.
