rear defrost electrical connection

The electrical connection to the rear defrost on my Wife's Tahoe came off the glass. It appears to be soldered on. can I reattach it with some kind of glue or solder it back on? how can I do this with out breaking the glass or destroying the electric strips in the glass?

Thanks for any help.

There are conductive glues available. I'd be pretty leery of solding against the glass. It could break from the heat. There is a kit for repairing the circuit strips themselves. It's like a paint on copper coloured stuff. I did a quick search on conductive glues and came up with a home made concoction at

You could try that.

I was afraid of heating the glass and breaking it. I'll test the mix on some scrap stuff first and see. sounds easy enough.
