The black moulding that sits on the inside of the window has started to peel up from the back edge. I want to glue it back down to the panel but not sure what is a good product to use. I was thinking of just giving gorilla glue a shot but figured I would check with you guys to see if you know of something better.

I would try a 5-minute epoxy mix. I've used it on exterior rubber trim with good results. Plus, it comes in a clear that might not look as bad as some adhesives.

Don't use Gorilla glue, that stuff expands like crazy and will end up where you don't want it.

I suggest stopping in to a dealer body shop (just about any dealer with active body shop) and ask them what they use.

I bet they point to one or another 3M urethane (like the black stuff used to glue stationary windows in place) to do the fix.

You can buy it at NAPA stores I think.

There may also be a Permatex cement (maybe urethane maybe silicone) that would work.

The black urethane is what was recommended by my body shop when I replaced the windshield outer weatherstrip.
I'm not quite sure what piece on the interior you are talking about but if it doesn't seal weather or water the 5 minute epoxy Aaron mentioned is easy to work with, strong and easy to clean excess up after it has cured.
The black urethane can get messy if your not careful but bonds anything to glass extremely well.

RTV silicone also makes a great adhesive, particularly when you are gluing something elastic like soft plastic or rubber. It takes a while to dry, and it smells for a day. Use a clamp or weight to hold in place until cured.

Be aware of the different properties of adhesives and use to your advantage. Super glue for example is very strong when used as a thin layer over a wide surface area - like mounting the rear view mirror. It works nicely when pieces fit together tightly.

For loose fitting parts that have gaps and holes, epoxy is good because it cures quickly (no runs) and is mechanically strong to support. Using super glue in this situation may fail because it's so brittle.

Gluing something made of rubber, or under high heat stress (think hot dash during summer) silicone is great. It stays flexible, and is removable is some cases. Super glue does not do well with high heat or with flexible materials. And even epoxy has its heat limits.

For gluing thin vinyl or carpet to form to a shape, spray adhesives like 3M Super 77 or contact cement are the best. Other liquid adhesives can soak through or create uneven spots under the material.

Also you may want to check with a dealer - sometimes those moldings/weatherstrips are not terribly expensive.

That Lexel stuff looks interesting. For my purposes, I might be better off with a rubber (RTV) sort of adhesive. Since I have some off that around, I'll give it a shot.

Thanks for the suggestions!!
