Default How to Attach Trim

We built an outdoor kitchen and used some old corrugated metal as backsplash. The metal is screwed with roofing screws. We want to put a small piece of trim over the metal to hide the screws. I can't figure out how to fasten the trim.

Your thoughts please... Thanks!

Default well

You could glue it on with some PL400 and prop it into place till it dries, or install some nails going into the piece above by predrilling holes, and hammer them in sideways with the hammer.

Yellow Carpenters glue and clamp in place. Might be tricky to find any nail gun the would fit under but you could nail down from above.

A right angle cordless or a stubby screwdriver.
