They are not attached with glue, they are attached with mechanical fasteners. You can use staples (like they were from the factory), stainless steel or aluminum pop rivets, and small stainless steel screws. The best place to buy the sweep (which is called belt weatherstripping) is through J.C. Whitney. You can get a 6 ft. length of it for under $20.00.

The one in the picture was re-attached with regular screws, which I will replace with stainless pop rivets when the time comes to install new weatherstripping. The screws are sticking up because I loosened them, they disappear in the flocking when they are tight, as do the staples and pop rivets. You can see the original staple holes in the '48 Chevy window molding in the other picture. If you're a real glutton for punishment, you can try using the staples which are available HERE I know it says 58 to 64 Impala, but all Chevies used the same ones until 1967.

The outside sweeps are done the same way as the ones on the window molding. Don't let the curve at the end of the outside sweep throw you, the belt weatherstripping can be formed to match the original.

glass sweeps

Thank you very much for all your time and help. Its going back together now. Where is the best place to get my glass channel, i want to use flex channel without the stainless steel bead, since i have made my door glass longer. I tried some with the bead and then my inside molding would not go back on.
