Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: 16 Runabout rear deck

I am up to my elbows in the restoration of an early 16 runabout and need information on the sheet metal on the rear deck. Lang's told me their supplier of the side trim is unreliable as far as when they get around to making up parts ordered. So I figure it is just as easy to make my own. The 16 does not appear to have a bead, just sharp bends top, bottom and corners.
So, my question is, how does the deck planking for? The plans I have show a rabbit for the floor boards, but not the deck. Does the decking then extend to the outside edge of the frame or the outside edge of the side trim piece? Does the trim metal cover all of this and the deck sheet metal then go over everything, or does it too go under the side trim.
Explanations and diagrams would be appreciated, I do better with a visual.

Eric: Thanks for the link. Still need to know how the parts under the tin go together. The land I am using does. Not show this detail.

Thank you, Charley. That was what I needed to know.
