Default installing stainless trim on running board

Newbie here with a question about installing stainless trim on running boards of a 29 roadster. I removed the old trim and rubber map and was wondering if the rubber mat should be installed first then the trim over the mat? I know I should remember how it came off but there was significant time between removal and now re-installing. Thanks

Did this to my Model A when the original running board edging was damaged. If the stainless edging has a lip, then it goes on the side of the board with the lip over the rubber mat. You may need to glue the mat before installing edging. Use stainless screws too!!,

Just did new rubber and trim on my 30. Trial fit everything first and trim the mat to fit. The trim piece closest to the splash apron should be treaded onto the mat, then glue it all down. I used the gel style contact cement common to formica kitchen counters since I was gluing to original running boards and they were pitted. the ends are clamped in place with the bolts that hold the running board to the fenders and the outside piece covers the outer edge of the running board and will need to bent up slightly from the bottom edge to hold in place.
