Always, leave the rubber, on the bottom, on the body. Shoot urethane in where the glass goes, work glass into the rubber. Reinstall chrome, put rope in grove (top and 2 sides) that goes over the pinch weld. Then shoot a bead of urethane in the outer groove, where the rubber meets the roof. Then rope in the top and 2 sides. If you want to make the job neater, put painters tape on the body, overlapping the dirt line or where the rubber covers. Push down on the rubber oozing out any excess urethane, clean it, the pull the tape. Clean job.
No Ooops on this one...
