I think you got some bad advice.
The "trim" is the seal. The seal is placed around the perimeter of the glass. A small nylon rope is put in the outer lip of the seal.
The seal/glass is laid on the aperture. Someone inside of the car pulls the rope out which pulls the seal over the lip in the aperature while an assistant outside of the car applies pressure to the glass.
Do a search in the 911 Technical forum. You will find everything that you could hope to know about windshield installation.
