I go to a hardware store and buy single sided foam tape. It is available in a many dimensions. The factory actually aligned the roofrail channel to the glass with the use of a block. JohnZ posted a photo. I'd have to dig for it.

Thanks, interesting. Really see how you could paint yourself in a corner trying to properly align everything. The quarter glass is in, installed the weather seals today (just arrived) Don't laugh, sort of held my breath when I rolled the windows up. Slid right in...whew. Yea, two threads going here, tend to multi task.

Here's a sketch of the glass positioning nylon blocks we used - three per side, clamped to the roof rail and roof drip rail (two for the front window, one for the quarter window). Adjusted the glass to go into the slot on the block and tightened the  adjusters, then removed the clamps and installed the roof rail weatherstrip.

I used a ceiling popcorn gun and used evercoat undercoating mixed with a thicker asphalt based roof sealer in order  to get the "build"
