Wow, you couldn't stack a few washers and use a longer machine screw to put the trim kit on?

Big threads wouldn't engage. Otherwise probably yes, or get a longer spline. Kohler sells them.

Trade secret.

OK fine. One of these, wasn't the right size but let me wallow around the edge to get the shape. Then used a 1/2" one like a straight router bit to flatten out the area. Just guided the holesaw with my hand at full speed in the drill. It helped that it's softer tile.
