I left the paneling nail up so the guys at the shop could see what I did to fasten the track........... The hole has to be dre drilled of course.
There's 3/8" difference in height between these two surfaces. I think that's about the limit using the Cortec T molding the way that I did. The job I just completed using this process was ever so slightly slightly less height change than this mock-up.
If I was actually installing this same trim at this particular height difference, (3/8") the wooden shim raising the metal track would probably need to be almost an 8th inch thicker... maybe 3/32?
...again, this mock up is just for show. Look close and you can see the T molding barely reaches into the groove of the track.
You can also see approximately how much was removed from the left side of the T molding so it fits into this smaller width metal track. If fit slightly snug that cut side will still grab into the sharp edges of the metal track.
........if in doubt, add the glue of your own choice.
Will work for food.
