Glass Stays in Cabinet Doors?
Hello, new here. Glad to find this forum! I'm a newby and a hack but a careful one who cares about doing a good job.
I've just finished a refin on a cabinet but when I took the glass out of the doors to do them the original stays (for lack of a better word) pretty much fell apart. The cabinet is from the 1960's and the stays were like plastic shoe molding... 3/8" x 1/8" and pretty soft plastic. I can't seem to locate anything like it off the shelf and even if I did I'm not that confident I could jewel hammer them in without breaking the rather fragile bubble glass they're up against. I think using an air nailer with tiny brads would still be over kill. Not sure how to proceed. I'm otherwise completely finished but this last little step has me stumped.
Is there an alternative that doesn't involve nailing? Perhaps a peel & stick alternative? It's not a particularly valuable piece or anything but I want to do it right. It basically just has to hold the glass in and dampen vibration so it doesn't rattle. Suggestions?
