Flashing where a full dormer and steeped pitch upper roof meet a lower roof

Hello everyone, I apologize if this question has already been addressed, I looked for a solution for an hour in the forum and could not find one. The situation is: I am putting a metal roof (American Building Components Imperial Rib) on my Cape Cod. The roof is over a porch that has been transformed into a living space. The roof meets a the vertical wall of a full dormer and also extends on both sides of the dormer to meet the steep pitch of the natural slope of the roof. I cannot figure out how the flashing all comes together where the full dormer, lower roof, and the pitched roof all meet on both sides of the dormer. The area on both sides of the dormer is about fifteen inches wider and about another 10 inches longer than the roof in front of the dormer. I'm not sure how the rake, lower gambrel, and end wall flashing should be layered or how to install the flashing from the steep pitch roof (Lower Gambrel) around the vertical side wall of the dormer to the front of the dormer (Endwall Flashing). Thanks for your time and help, Mark
