I used to love sealant. I figured, the more I used, the better the seal... Right?
General rule of Boxster mech'ing: do NOT use sealant on gaskets, or rubber plugs. If you are assembling metal to metal, use the minimum amount sealant to mate the parts.

By the time you get this car done, you'll be great at this stuff.
