door glass question

I'm working on a Bricklin door glass that has separated from the lifting mechanism.
The glass was glued to a metal bar with some black glue.
In another site I read that this is normal and fails often. And given that these are "gull wing" doors and can slam hard if the air system is not adjusted correctly this seems like poor arrangment.
Has anyone reworked one of these beasts to get a more permanent job?

I have used E 6000 for such a problem in the past and it holds up very well.I just used it on my lemans 2 weeks ago and I have confidence it will last.
I used it many times in years past and it gives a good result. Several of the body shops I have been associated with in the past use it for the same as well.
It is urethane based so make sure the glass and metal piece are defenitly where you want it.Removing the metal strip wont be an option.It does stay soft and flexible but does not tear easily
May be best to test some on another dispensable item too see if it fits your
expectations.

Appreciate the compliment-thanks LAT.
One question.
Is E6000 a 3M product? If not, who makes it?

you know i never thought to look.I got it at surplus city last time I bought some. Before that I bought it at an auto parts store.
I just looked. It is its own brand. Its made by eclectic products.I looked on amazon and ace hardware outlet shows to have it.Also it showed that k mart has it
Try a little on something first to make sure it suits your needs. I think it works very well JMO

You want "window urethan" that is what is used, I do this stuff on a regular basis and it is "window urethane" that you want. The same stuff that you would set a urethaned in window on a late model car.

Something like 3M 8693 or 8609, or 8566, there are a number of them.

That IS what is used for windshield replacement on late model cars, on unibody cars, etc.
