replace bathroom trim?

My Sovereign's "insert nosing", the trim that is held in place in an aluminum track, has gone brown (it's beige when new) and some has even cracked, all due to age.

I bought new stuff to replace it, but it is supposed to slide in from the end, according to the seller.

The problem is that, in the bathroom, there are a few areas where at both ends, the aluminum track is right up against another wall that meets it at 90 degrees, so there is no way to get the trim to slide it into the track to start.

Anyone have an idea how it's supposed to go in?

Here's a picture of one end of a track, to show you what I'm trying to describe.

I have heated up... to the point it is almost tooooo HOT to touch! Them pinch it together with your fingers and work both ends into the dove tail chanel of the aluminum! It takes a little doing but it will work! Note: cut it longer than the old shruken piece you are replacing... start at each end and work to the middle, leaving a little speed bump, then work the extra back out to the edges so that it makes a snug fit!

Good Luck Vin....

I will be replacing mine with pvc(?)edgebanding, like what you use on a counter edge. It comes in all types of colors, is flexible, and can be cut to what ever width you need. I will post pics when we complete the renos, and let you know how it turns out.

Happy Trailering !
