3M bedding compound, comes in a caulking tube. Joes hand cleaner works really good to clean it off after you put the chrome back on.

Make sure you fill theweatherstripping good with the sealer, its going to be a little messy.

Urethane

no it has to be a non hardning sealer the 3m bedding and glazing is the correct compound https://www.autobodytoolmart.com/p-10389-12829.aspx

Don't use urethane, 3M 08509 works great.
