They sell "window weld" at Lowes. Would probably work. No expert on gluing glass in a top though.

seriously dude, there isn't realy anything that is going to hold it in very well. your best bet is to take it to a trim shop and have them replace the top or have them remove the window panel and sew in a plastic window.

i mean, i guess i could just sew it in by hand, but wouldn't it leak like hell if you just sewed it in?

maybe just sew it in myself, tightly with some thick thread and chase it with silicon? or silicon and then sew it in, idk eff it. i don't want to replace the top, because this car is basically just a toy.
