Adhesive Suggestions for Rubber Trim Around Windshield?

Wondering if anyone has a suggestion for an adhesive for the rubber trim piece in the picture below. Its the vertical trim next to the windshield, on the front of the A-pillar.

I've read that other trim pieces are just form fitted, but these are both coming unstuck and have a previous adhesive under them. Plan is to remove the rubber, scrape off the old adhesive, then glue it on with something.

Suggestions welcome.

I used Sikaflex-221





First I used superglue, but that didn't hold.

3m makes a black molding and trim glue that I have used with success on the next strip after that that runs from the front to the back. It now feels like a solid piece, where before it wiggled and eventually broke loose.
