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.
PS: Tried to post some pictures but I'm unable. I've never been able to post pictures on this site...
Good Plan, Use a urethane glue dab just big enough to hold the molding dow, problem solved.

I used some RTV sealer, spread it between the trim and glass, kind of worked it in with a putty knife until I was sure I had enough to make good contact. I put some weight on the trim to hold it down while it dried, let it set up and it seems to be holding nicely. Cleaning up afterwards was the worst part. I covered the glass and chrome trim with tape so it was protected, I used a sharp knife and MEK to clean the seems... Al
