I used the 3M bedding compound on mine. It's not too difficult to do, and it is what the FSM says to do, so I did it. Getting the tip under the rubber to start is a bit of a pain, but once you get it in there, dragging it around while gunning in the goo isn't too difficult. You can use a razor to remove excess compound that oozes out on the glass, and a credit card works reasonable well on the painted portions, then you just follow up with some mineral spirits and a rag to eliminate the remeaining residue.
