Default F-757 Plate Fitting Details (Slider)

Late last night I fitted my F-757 plate on the right side. All went well. The one detail I'm unsure about is that at the forward side of the curved cutout it extends slightly inboard, maybe 1/16", from the edge of slot in the trim piece. There are no details in the instructions or a detailed enough view in the drawings to tell exactly how it should fit.

I'm assuming this probably doesn't matter, but I was just going to adjust the radius slightly so that the two pieces align. I'm not sure of the function of this piece other than being a gusset so I wanted to check before trimming some off.

Detail B on drawing 42 shows that it blends into the slot. I don't recall if I had to trim mine or not but it is flush at the fwd end.
