    I'm building a coolerbator and I have glass for the viewing windows that I was going to mount into the cooler lid.

    My question is what do I use to glue them on?

    I got some stuff and I'm just noticing it says not to use on polypropylene. What did other people use? That worked?

    I used clear silicone, lots of it to create a continuous bead to set the glass into, then over laid that with duct tape. I splurged, and bought a nice feminine print duct tape. Just because! Oh... I used a sheet of glass both inside and outside to prevent condensation.

    Thank you, I do have some silicone...dang was hoping for something that would be faster set time than 24hr.

    I do have two panes, the cooler lid is hollow so I wanted to maintain the air gap and prevent fogging.
