Post best glue for mirror to what looks to be plastic?

mirror fell off exterior mirror on my 72 CAMer-o, have a new one, looks like a plastic plate where it was glued to, old glue looks like old yellowed clear glue of some kind, after i scrape that crud off, what should i use to glue it back on. want to make sure it doesnt dissolve the back of the mirror.

I have used silicone sealer for this and it works well. Put a couple of dabs of it on the plastic backing and temporarily tape the mirror in place till the silicone cures. Should hold just fine.

Super Weatherstrip Adhesive (in tube, not spray can) is yellow in color. That might be what was on there. Stuff is pretty strong but takes a while to dry.

Late model widshields are glued in with a urethane glue. I would get some of that stuff. It will not come off again guaranteed.
