John,

For what it's worth, I started at the stainless trim piece then stretched my vinyl out from there.  That way, I did not have to anticipate the stretch needed for the nice curved look of the upper padded section or try to put holes in for the push fixes at the same time I was stretching the vinyl for a smooth fit.  I do not know if it is the best way, but I have done 4 panels now and they look pretty good.

I used the 3M spray adhesive I used on the carpets.  It holds well enough but still required some clamping for setting.  I tried contact cement and had a compatibility problem with my vinyl backing.
