1937 Packard 120 hood top stainless piece question

Hi everyone, working on a 1937 Packard 120 and we are ready to install the new piece of stainless trim piece on the hood from Max Merritt Packard parts and we have a few questions:

Does the stainless piece slide in from the front?

Does the end cap on the stainless piece face the front or the rear of the hood?

Here are a few pictures of what we are talking about

Thanks!

The above/link is correct and yes, its a butt-clenching profanity laced ordeal. My addition is a bit of humor....I was invited to a private zillion dollar collection (NO photos) with the walls decorated with several blown-up factory photos. To my surprise, one was a 1937 assembly line photo with several workers, including one installing the hood center strip. NO kidding. Rubber hammer and leaning over the hood. NO kidding. I was allowed to take this ONE picture once I explained to the collection manager what was going on and why it was important.

Really!

Sorry about the glare - I assure you this is exactly what the worker was doing, white rubber hammer. I saw the original photo.

The center piece is now on. It was a pain but with the help of Jeff and Sam we were able to get the job done.
