Just wondering if you've tried this tactic and if it worked.

Sorry to bring back an old thread, however this just happened to my vert today at the car wash
I need as much help as possible with this, can anyone post thier 2 cents, and give me some advice on any other way to tackle this project..suction cups and pulleys, I'm a pizza guy, not a mechanic, nor do i pretend to be. Any help would be great.

It's now been 6 months with changes in temperature, at least 10 mechanical car washes and lots of rain and the glue job is holding firm.

Would the Rhino glue tape work as well for this job.

I'm not aware that Rhino Glue makes a tape. Make sure you are not referring to something made by Liquid Nails. It's a totally different kind of glue. See my initial posting and the Rhino Glue website referenced there.

I did the same thing to my vert about 2 yrs. ago and its still holding !!
I got the glue from the hoby shop its a cyranoacrylate glue for models and it works great !!! you can't tell it was ever done.
As a matter of fact I won a first place trophy with my car that same summer in a all vette car show !

I wish that somebody knew how to do this in the NY metro area for me. I have a '95 Firebird where the top of the rear window glass is separated from the top, I'm sure that the rest of the glass is not far behind. Everybody just wants to change tops and charge an arm and a leg.

Just bought the Rhino Glue and two sets of the double suction cups and dropped everything off at my local mechanic. This afternoon the rope was attached to the cups and it was slung over the top of the garage door beam just like in the instructions. I printed out this post and gave it to them and it sounds like they are following your instructions gem. I just hope that it works on a Firebird as well as on your vette!

Wow, oldie here.

My repair is solid as a rock as well.
I believe cleaning of the surfaces is key.

Just stuff a few comforters in the package tray to hold the window while it is setting.

I saw this post back when it was first posted. My parent's Mustang was having the same problem ... ordered the glue suggested Rhino Glue, did a similar repair job on their Mustang about 6 months ago, and it has been fine since then. for this post.

The car passed the car wash test with flying colors. I must say however that the glue is hard to handle and bonds to anything & everything. It even made a mess out of the rear glass which I'm hoping to be able to clean with some "OOPS" or "GOO GONE", we shall see.

Very innovative way to fix the top. Thanks for posting.
