Window adhesive was next on my list if Barge contact cement failed. I've seen it mentioned in threads like this multiple times over the years.

Gorilla glue isn't going to hold up, it's actually pretty bad as a glue. The whole filling in gaps thing is BS, it's extremely weak unless you can get hundreds of pounds of clamping force.

I plan to use a modified-silane (MS) polymer the next time I pull the driver's side door panel. It is popular in Japan and Europe, in preference to the older polyurethane (PU) adhesives, like those suggested earlier. It's good in earthquakes

Seems fine 6 months later, and it held for a couple of years in a previous e36 before I stripped the interior in that one.
I made sure to scuff, clean and wipe with IPA then hold clamped together for a good 24 hours.
But open to better alternatives if it fails.

Gorilla glue has held up fine for years for me. I made sure to sand and remove all the old glue from both surfaces, then mist lightly before gluing and clamping or setting weights on things. Let them sit for 24hrs and they've been solid ever since.
