    My truck came with this type of mirrors when I purchased in 2015. One was cracked and the other has scratches. Found replacement mirror glass and removed cracked glass.

    What type of glue can anyone recommend to glue glass in frame. I was thinking clear RTV but not sure if that is strong enough to last.

    The old glass was glued to 4 posts in frame and was very hard to remove.

    Suggestions welcome.

    Spray on BOTH surfaces, wait 1 minute then put 'em together.

    Gorilla Glue brand Construction Adhesive. I've tried it out on several projects the last couple years and the stuff works very well. It comes in a simple squeeze tube.

    I currently have Gorilla Clear contact cement and another brand of contact cement. I may try one of them.

    This pic is the one to glue glass to.

    Yeah, I'd definitely recommend the Gorilla Construction Adhesive over contact cement or similar.
