I was not able to source Rhinoliner, the brushable stuff, locally. I found a rubberized coating that I hope will work out.

I ended up using sheet aluminum and doing some forming/bending/bashing to mostly get the gaps closed up. After it bumps down the road a bit, I'll see whether there are gaps to cover. The rubber coating seems to be a good mix of adhesive and flexible caulking. I guess I'll see.
In THEORY there is no difference between Theory and Practice
