Tree, get yourself some of the UV curing glass glue. I've used Loctite 358 to awesome effect. The huge difference is you can keep messing around until the glass is perfectly aligned and no air bubbles. If it's not right you clean and start again, then once happy apply the UV lamp and it totally sets in a min or two. And very strong perfectly clear bonding.

Repair cracked glass

The kit shown below you can buy from any car repair shop or online for about 20 euro.
This is a windscreen repair kit and the result is truly remarkable. If you do it carefully, not only will it seal the crack but the crack will disappear completely, no matter how long the crack is, as long as there is no dirt actually in the crack.
