1955 Hardtop weather stripping installation

HELP !!! Installed weatherstrip on hardtop no problem. That job was EASY ......Then took out the rear strip. Mistake of Biblical proportions......

Cannot find a way to install the most rear one.
Has aluminum metal trench about 1/4" wide . Noted that replacement has a flared side. Tried pushing it in with screwdriver head. I get about
a foot of progress then it starts piling up and no more progress.

Is there a trick to doing this job ? If there is one, I would sure like to know what it is. I am getting nowhere and have spent a few hours getting nowhere.
Can I ask you where did you bought them ? I got them from the catalog of CONCOURSPARTS.com and they don’t fit well and I just returned them. Thank you
