Repair Auto Glass - Difficult to Clamp 

I would like to try and repair auto glass with Gorilla brown glue.

The edge of a strip of glass at the sliding rear window of my truck has a 2 inch, crescent shaped piece broken out.  There are no other breaks or cracks and the "chip" is in one piece and still fits perfectly in place.  The strip of glass has one exposed edge (where the break is), it does not seal the back window but covers the track the window slides in and has a gasket glued to the inside.  I don't need the repair to be watertight but it does need to be strong and will be seen from the outside.

Is pressure required for this type of repair?  If so, how long does the pressure need to be maintained?

Thanks

Re: Repair Auto Glass - Difficult to Clamp 

While Gorilla Glue does work on glass to glass applications, auto glass is in a category all by itself and we do not recommend using this type of adhesive on  your specific repair.  The foaming and expanding nature of Gorilla Glue will also cause issues for this repair.

I would recommend using a waterproof epoxy that you should be able to find at any auto retail shop or hardware store.
