It keeps saying "you must spread some rep around before giving it to". I've given about a dozen other people +rep, I'm not even sure I've ever given this person any...

    Rubber trim around windshield ripped. How best to fix?

    Can I fix this myself with a glue gun or should I take to a windshield shop? My dad says the windshield could pop out if I don't get it fixed. It's about an 18 inch length of rubber that's ripped. I have it tacked down now with duct tape. It's a crap car, not worth spending a ton of $ on. :) Thanks.
