I own a 60's style chalet cabin and we just installed a metal roof. My problem is that we have a thunderbird shaped roof (top of roof extends out at angle) on each end of the house and we're trying to find the proper trim. The first pieces of metal are cut at an angle and, the ridges are running water off the front of the eves instead of down to the gutters . Do I use regular edge trim and caulk or is there a special trim that I need?

Done right, this is going to run water off of the flared gables as they flare down. Anything else will create a channel that, depending upon where the house is, will collect tree leaves, pine needles, ice, and snow -- eventually becoming a major problem as it clogs and water is forced under the panels.
