I'm going to be doing this for my TR6 some time this year, and although 
I have no experience with it, I'm currently working on a Land Rover 
Discovery I bought cheap.

The Discovery is like a greenhouse with the amount of glass it has and 
every one of these windows uses just a rubber seal.

And around every seal it leaks and rusts. Use sealer.

Land Rover owners recommend this stuff, whic hcan be used with the 
rubber gasket in place:
