Slow leak between bellhousing and transmission case

I've got a very slow leak of transmission oil (a few drops a day while parked) on the joint between the bellhousing and the front of the transmission case on my 2000 GTV. There is no evidence of oil coming out of the bottom hole on the bellhousing, which leads me to think the input shaft seal is fine and the leak is along the seam between the two units.

I just reinstalled the engine and transmission after an engine rebuild. The leak may have been there before, but masked by the much larger amount of oil coming out of the engine.

I am wondering if there is a product that would possibly seal the seam from the outside? I know its not the preferred solution, but I'd like to avoid pulling the transmission if possible.
