    I used a narrow strip of Gorilla Tape as welting between the fender/tub and fender/grill. Easy peasy, stays inplace during assembly; it's thick enough and is realtively tough.

    In the mid-60s, the factory used a white-ish ribbon seal/calk between the fender/tub, fender/grill, and the removable floor plates arond the transmission area.
    PeteL’s link above is likely the product.
