repair of windshield rubber

I am getting ready to put my glass back in my 36 Chevy truck. I found that the windshield outer rubber broke at the seam. My rear glass rubber also came not glued together. Does anyone have some suggestions as what to use as an adhesive? It is a newer rubber not weather checked or dry and brittle.

super glue, any time i cut door/window rubber it gets super glued back together
learned this when i was an industrial mechanic, we'd need an oddball size o-ring for a 30 year old, 3000 psi hydraulic system.
our supplier brought us an make your own o-ring kit, it had rolls of o-ring material, a razor blade and super glue.
worked every time

That is what i was thinking super glue.
i priced one of those o ring kits it was like $116.
A new rubber only cost about $30.
The Loctite glue in the kit was $30 for a small .33 oz bottle.
thanks
Chief

I might not made myself clear. That is a bad habit of mine. What I need to do is fasten the two ends together.
I went into Lowe’s and got some Loctite Super Glue and tried it on the windshield rubber.
I'll check it on Monday to see if it holds.

super glue.

you might be able to bend it and break the bond with work, but you will never pull it apart.

My brother used to work in the Glass installation in a Ford Factory and they used a 3 M product but I don't know the tag number, Call Steele rubber products, they make restoration rubber parts and weatherstrips and see what they reccomend. they list several products on their web site.

You mean to tell me that when you have 2 ends to join together and you use Super Glue, that it will stay together even though you have to stretch the rubber to go around the glass? Great stuff if it works. I have the same problem where the rubber fits into a groove, but has to be joined together before placing it.

I have only done the rear glass. It did need to stretch it a bit but not like the windshield. I need to get the frame painted. I think that I will start in the middle of the bottom and work both ways from there. That the stretching will be away from the joint.

yes, try it on some scrap and try to pull it apart. you need clean fresh cut ends if possible.
chief clamped his, i don't just glue and hold then set aside for a while
on new rubber you can't break the bond
we used this to make custom sized o-rings. get a bigger o-ring cut it to size and glue it

the back glass rubber on my 58 was just off the roll stock that had to be cut to size.
works for door weather strip too

Okay I got my frame back from my painter. As I stated before I started installing the gasket at with the joint at the bottom center of my frame and worked it both ways and finished at the top center. The supper glue held A OK.

If you want to get fancy like locktite makes an o ring glue. But you have to keep the glue in the fridge, wear gloves, wear safety glasses and put 911 on stand by incase you spill it. I used the locktite on high pressure o rings cut to fit many times. The o ring will never fail where the glue is 10 yrs down the road.

By the way super glue / o ring glue works great when you slice your hand open. Saves on stitches.
