Also, how can this trim be attached without rivits?
The bending is a bit difficult by hand, but not impossible. Just work it slowly.
It is an interference fit, meaning that the neds of the channel are crimped together to stay on the panel. I have seen smaller than normal rivets holding on certain sections of the trim as well. Mostly it's crimped, though.
