Second the advice for the A2 sealant. I got some from www.skygeek.com, which has a nice variety of tank sealants.

This first picture shows the general approach and sizing for sealant. The second photo shows how to overcoat seams and potential leak points. Basically, it adds the suspenders to the belt for more sealing security.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm feeling a little better about this.

The Mothership said to take the access plate off and seal from within. I'm going to temporarily seal from outside just to continue a thorough leak test, then take the E string off my Taylor and try that method for removing the plate (needed new strings anyway). Thanks again for all the help.

High E or low E string?
