Drip edge?

When I did my soffits and fascia on my gable roofed garage, I installed soffits, fascia, and "L" trim(piece that goes underneath the shingles and holds the fascia) on the peaks. I was told to leave these trim pieces off where the eavestroughs would go as they weren't necessary. I just had my eaves professionally installed but now I can still see the sheathing between the shingles and the fascia as they didn't butt the eaves right up to the shingles, they properly angled them. At this point, what is my best option to cover the sheathing? The installer said not to worry about it as the shingles overhang enough that water will not touch the exposed sheathing but I don't like the look.

This link basically shows my scenario and what they've developed, wonder how hard it'll be to find something like this in a hardware store? Thoughts?

Most roofing supply houses sell regular drip edge with a wide front face that would work fine.
