Rear window defroster

Any advice on what adhesive is required, to reglue the wire that feeds the rear window defroster heating element?

I used the Permatex product and so far the repair is holding and defroster works again.

That's exactly what you need.  Am Adhesive with conductive properties.  Chalk another one up for Permatex!

Still like the look of the '05-'09 body style.  ;)

Yes, very appealing design, the 2005-2009 body.  This black GT has Ford Racing Performance Parts lowering springs, which drops the car 1.5" for a more aggressive and aesthetic look, many would say.
