Glue the channel to the back side of the metal with structural bonding adhesive. (YES it would be strong enough) And then set the glass on urethane in the channel and use a moulding like on an 80's S-10 Chevy or Camaro of the vintage. The moulding simply tucks into the channel between the glass and the channel sealing over the gap between the glass and the channel.

You may be able to pull this off without damaging the paint.


This was my original idea on doing this. Seemed like the best way ... just need to figure out how to make the channel and get her done =)

BTW, I noticed a bunch of your posts on this site. Glad to see you are still around. Seems like I used to see a bunch of your tutorials over on

Thanks for your insights here.
