Not a recommendation, but a funny story. Years ago, my wife had a
Chevette, which had a strip of rubber-ish molding running along the
middle of the doors. This piece came off one door, and she just glued
it back on with regular Elmer's glue. I forget how she held it whle the
glue set, but I'm sure it was ... somewhat casually, let's say.

Amazingly to me, that trim stayed on for as long as we had the car - at
least a couple of years more.

They'd use a 3M trim adhesive, which you can buy at your FLAPS.
