Yes...the first one will line up perfect, but the next one won't. As you well know the soffit is divided in 2 sections. The sections do not line up with the mitered one.

If your two sections of porch are different widths and your double channel runs from the outside corner on the house to the outside corner of the porch you will not be at 45 degrees and your angles won’t line up
