winddshield gasket install question

1) Is weatherstrip adhesive necessary between glass and gasket?

2) I've heard of the string method to seat the gasket around the sheet metal on the inside of the car. It seems that weatherstrip adhesive can't be put put on until after seating the gasket otherwise the string will just clear it all out and make a mess. Is this true? Should the adhesive go down first, or should I seat the gasket with the string first and then go back and lift up the gasket on the outside, squirting in adhesive after it's installed?

I've converted over to the service manual's method of installing the lockstrip _before_ the window/gasket/strip assembly goes in via the string method. On the 02 front & rear glass, this works well.

Now I know the service manual says to use a sealer in the groove, but that would make the install a nightmare. I've never done it or seen it done that way. Install it without adhesive (use foamy spray glass cleaner as a lubricant, as needed). IF you find leaks, go back and use a sealer on the trouble spots.
