1986 WindyPass VE-24 waterproofing

I know this may be a long shot, but does anyone know how Northface waterproofed the Windypass tents in 1986 (silicon or polyurethane)?  I have posted this question on REI's page about waterproofing and was told to contact the tent manufacturer.  I already sent Northface the same question.  They want me to send the tent to the warranty department.  The warranty covers manufacturing defects.  This is definitely just old tent syndrome and I am not wasting time and money shipping it to Northface.  I would like to reseal the seams and maybe re-proofing the floor.  I have researched products, but the warnings about making sure to use the proper product for the type of original waterproofing have me a bit concerned.  Thanks!!
