i bought a second build plate (or just remove BuildTak from your original) and use silicon thermal pads and placed glass on it. works well! i will try and post a picture tomorrow. https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-400mm-Silicone-Thermal-Heatsink/dp/B007PPEW52
the pads do two things. they transfer the heat from the metal bed to the glass and silicone has a high coefficient of friction (with glass its over 1) so it holds the glass in place without the need for clamps. i will still try and get a picture on here for you. i just wont be back in the shop until Monday. also do not forget that the glass will sit a bit higher than the Buildtak did so you will need to raise the z axis "tab" way higher than normal to prevent the nozzle from crashing into the glass when you home Z axis. then readjust the nozzle distance to your liking. i set all mine at .006 inch or .15 mm.
