At least that's the way it appears to me. The trim should
definitely be the last thing you install.

I started with one end of the strip in the middle of the
bottom and worked my way around. When you get to a corner,
bend the strip so it will drop into the groove. It has been
several years since I put the trim on my GT6, but I don't
recall having any particular problem doing the job. Be sure
to use a rubber mallet in case you slip and hit the glass and
to keep from marring the plastic trim.
