How does the rear in fill panel actually fit to the boot?

Got my new one back from the bodyshop but not sure how it attaches! I have taken the number plate off but that's as far as I have got... should it clip on at the bottom some how?

if you take the boot lid lining off you'll see the nuts that attach the panel from inside
 
Finally got back to trying to fit the infill panel and have figured out the issue is the black rubber strip at the top which is already fitted to my boot. The profile is different so I guess I need to replace that bit with a newer style bit.

Below is a photo of the current one.

So, has anyone got one I can purchase?

Cheers
Scott

Now resolved. Thanks.
 
Hiya. The body shop simply skimmed the top of the infill panel as there's a wee lip.

I guess the problem is you have fitted an infill panel to a boot lid that did not have one as standard, because your car is pre facelift.
