Best seam sealer for floor pans and body work

Hey guys,
I'm getting close to being ready to replace the huge chunks of rusty floor panels on my 79. Whole bunch of metal is coming from Tabco tomorrow.
What brand/type of seam sealer have you used and recommend? Seems there's a range from $10-30/tube. Don't want to get substandard stuff, but I also don't want to pay an arm and a leg. I'm going to have to use a least a 2-3 tubes or more (driver and pass floor pans, the section behind the front seats until the little ramp up, and then two large sections of the rear bed).
Thanks for your help!

the brush on stuff in a qt can or so is awesome
I use it all the time,no more difficult tubes

you can use a small paint brush, and just before it skins up completely you can use a rag with thinner and smooth it right out

I used this stuff on my M715 and was pretty happy with it. Great for fenders but I don't know that it'd be ideal for floor.
For my Bronk I did some research and most folks recommended this stuff, so that's what I bought. Haven't used it yet but should in the next month or two.

From recommendations here, I've been using the 3M product and I like it a lot. I found it at Advance Auto in the tube which works for me since I don't need a lot. Advance Auto Parts - Down for Maintenance
