    I just looked at a passenger door I am planning on using and it is a rubber strip. I've replaced windows in other cars. It is actually rubber that you set along the edge of the window and push it and the glass into the channel. I don't remember if any adhesive is used. Hopefully somebody with more knowledge can help.

    i used liquid nails left over from some housework i did.i dont know how hard it would be to get it back out but no problems so far.i would go to a glass shop and ask what they use and they might sell it to ya for cheap or at least tell you whats best.i didnt want to spend any more money.in the army we just used silicon gasket maker.but then again we jerryrigged a lot when we didnt have the right parts or tools.haha

    I had a glass guy install my wing wondows and the rubber strip that he used to install the windows into the channel had no adhesive on it.

    I went to NAPA and got the adhesive for windows. It is black and messy but it seems to be working great. After it dried, I took a razor along the top edge of the metal and cleaned any excess off.

    Thanks Steve. I wasn't sure. I was over at my buddy's bodyshop today and sure enough no glue. Once the glass is in with that stuff, It won't come out.
