I did not do any trimming - just finess, encouragement, brute strength and 2 sets of hands. Popsicle sticks can help at pressure points to encourage while reducing scratching engine paint and/or powder coating.

Got it! Thanks everybody for the help

Now .. where to order red Lycoming touch up paint to fix the collateral damage .. not terrible, but still got some scratches.

I haven't completely thought it through but it seems that it would be a lot easier to install at least the top aft the baffles before the engine gets mounted.
