Window Chrome

65 SS here with a problem with the clips that hold the chrome around the rear window in place.
I had the car painted a couple of years ago and removed the front and rear glass. I never liked the fit and finish of the chrome that is around the windows. I gears up and had new glass installed - LOF date coded from City Glass and while the chrome was off I sent it out and had it polished. The reinstall went well until the driver side rear lower. The chrome is engaged in the clip but rides too high leaving a gap. I can push down on the chrome and it fits nicely but will not stay in place as it pops up maybe 3/16" leaving the gap. If the glass was out I would remove the clip and get one with a lower profile but removing the glass in not something I want to do at this time. So I'm considering some kind of adhesive to be squirted under the chrome and place a weight on it and let it dry. Any thoughts on what to use? I realize that future removal of the chrome will be difficult with the dried adhesive in place but I'm looking for options.
Thanks... Al

Re: Window Chrome

Good Plan, Use a urethane glue dab just big enough to hold the molding dow, problem solved.
