Hi all, I figured I'm qualified to pipe up on this one because, living in the 
central Calif 
coastal rain forest, the inside of my Jettas has been swamped a time or 
three.  I used
silicone and had good results, but it's a bit messy.  The best way I've found 
is to use 
the heavy gage sheeting and attach it with a length of the double back 
adhesive trim 
tape 3M makes. I've used it for reattaching body trim pieces also and as long 
as there
 is no surface moisture present when you try and stick it, it works great. It 
 comes in apprx 3/4 inch widths, and I used scissors to cut it in half 
lengthwise for this
 particular job.  You might need to get it a an automotive paint store, and 
it's not real 
cheap, but you get what you pay for.  (Very sticky stuff)    Good luck, Doug
