Question Order of installation for Garage doors and trim

I am putting in new garage doors and I want to replace the old aluminium trim while I'm at it. What should I do first? Replace the trim and then install the doors or should the doors go in and then repalce the trim?

I'd hang the garage door... make sure it's spaced far enough away from the jamb that it doesn't touch it (1/2-3/4") as it operates. Open the door, then wrap the trim with your trim coil (I like to bend it around the back of the jamb to help keep the back side from getting wavy). Then close the garage door and install your garage door jamb weatherstrip.
