Im gonna give this a shot... I bought 3M channel bond adhesive for starters, Now, Can I glue the 2 brackets outside the car then install...or does it need to be in the door to allow for alignment. Also how far from the edge of the glass do the brackets go?
Any advice and or pics would be greatly appreciated.

I always do it outside the door but mark off where the brackets go for reference before cleaning anything. I don't have any measurements for you. You could always mount the glass in the brackets w/o glue (tape them to the bracket) just to get the reference point and then do the repair.

1" fore and aft on the bracket spacing. Usually you put the brackets on before inserting glass but since it is such a tight fit putting them on inside the door may not be such a bad idea.

Thanks for the info guys. I probably need to go all the way around, but we'll see how this goes.

Funny thing is I have to do the passenger side on mine before heading up to Daytona later this month.
