SCALE BUILDER VIRGIN: Gerasis DG-800 build

After 105 RC model builds, comes my first "real" (fiberglass) scale sailplane, a 3.6 meter DG-800 from the Gerasis kit.
My question today is: What adhesive is recommended for securing the canopy clear part to the light gray canopy surround?

The canopy clear part looks and feels like all the vacuum formed canopies I have seen in the past.
The light grey canopy surround rail is a "slippery" plastic, like Dura-Lene or 35mm film cans holders.

Candidates in my mind are:
1. Beacon Adhesives QUICK-GRIP
2. Pacer Formula 560 CANOPY GLUE
3. Ponal EXPRESS
4. EPOXY - after roughing up both sides

Advice from those who have solved this problem will be appreciated.
