back. So here goes:

For this example I used 1/4" deep #8507K14 rubber edge trim from
McMaster Carr. I basically made a little jig to cut one side off of
the edge trim. To cut the trim I generously applied WD-40 to the
trim as I pull it through the cutter. 20' of window trim in 2

disappears. Is this normal or what area should I sand to have
this drop down more? I first thought it was the flange back area
hitting the longeron but there's a gap right there. Thanks!
