New windshield seal for 930

Body

Vehicle Information: Model: 930; Year: 1986; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 90,000;

My 930 windshield has been leaking so I removed it today to replace the seal. Apparently the problem is not new as there was some silicone and a lot of black sealer under the old seal. Three questions: 1) Could the black stuff (VERY TOUGH) be from the factory, or were they installed "dry"? 2) I am assuming I need to restore a smooth, painted surface to get a good seal, and while I have scraped off the large accumulation of sealer, the remains are proving very difficult to clean off; is there a solvent or other method you would recommend for cleaning this stuff off? 3) Once I am satisfied with the surface, should I install the new seal "dry" or would you recommend using a sealer, and if so which one? Thanks!!
