Unhappy Fiberglass Top Ailment...

Putting the fiberglass top back on the ST for the winter and the four bolt metal strip glued to one of the side window panels has conveniently detached itself.

I've tried a couple of different adhesives to no avail as the bolt strip comes off as soon as the end back window panel nuts are even lightly snugged down.

Does anyone have an adhesive recommendation that would hold the bolt strip on securely?

Have your tried gorilla glue? Just mask off the surrounding area because it expands as it dries.
