glue for rubber weather stripping inside Trillium door

Our rubber weather stripping is beginning to become unglued. What kind of glue will affix the rubber to the fiberglass door?

3M also make an excellent weatherstrip adhesive.
This product I have used extensively in automotive applications and it has never failed me.

It's probably also available in a brown or beige color, and an auto parts store would have it.

Thanks all for your advice! And the links to products on Amazon. The reviews on Amazon were helpful...sounds like the right product for the job. We may check auto supply places right in town also. Thanks!

Clear, black, and yellow. The stuff works very well, but you must be careful not to over apply and also to avoid any spiderweb fine strings which can deface the surface.

Might be just as easy to replace
I replaced the seal on the door with self adhesive foam weather stripping available at any hardware store. I think I had to buy two packages to go completely around.

From an older post...
The seal on the door is foam tape 1/4" x 3/4" . I used super glue where the ends came together and a small spot or two where it didn't hold but otherwise it was just peel and stick. Of course make sure the surface is clean.
This photo might help

We tackled the weather strip project today. Used the adhesive that Thomas G recommended, which we found at the local auto parts store. I think it will work beautifully! Instead of squeezing directly out of the tube, we put some into a small jar cap and used a small artist's paint brush (which was sacrificed) to apply it. Seemed more manageable that way. The stuff is really stringy. The weather stripping was still in really good shape, so we didn't have need to replace the whole thing. Thank you, everyone!

I love it when a plan comes together

Thanks for letting us know, it will be helpful to those in a similar situation!
