I've seen it at Pepboys but you can also get it from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=windo+weld&x=0&y=0

Also, if this is for the vapor barrier, some have used GE Silicone II performance caulking and reported better results than Butyl.

GE Silicone II is available at any Home Improvement store, Home Deopt, Lowes, Ace, Tru value etc.
Yes, this is for the vapor barrier. I dont want something that is permanent because just in case I need access to the window regulators later on...dont want to tear up the vapor barriers. Is the GE Silicone II something permanent?

3M Windo-weld is available in various thicknesses, the thicker the higher the price. I got this.

You could also try some of the home-depot type places that sell materials for home sunroof repair/sealing.
Do you know whats the correct size to use for those vapor barriers?

my wagon is long gone, but i still lurk here. before i sold it, i had already tried to restick the vapor barriers once, but it only worked temporarily. i ended up using some dynamat extreme and just replaced the vapor barrier altogether. rolled it in good and hard with a roller, and i haven't heard anything from the new owner about it, so i'm assuming it worked out for him. but something to consider, hell it'll even cut down on some of the noise. just a thought.
