Mounting 200a semi flush panel in stucco


My new 200a semiflush panel came with an L shaped nailing flange that comes forward out to the face of the panel. (pretty ugly on nice new panel)
Q-Is this "extra" flange designed to be bent back over the nailing flange after mounting and before stucco? maybe to put the flasing in between?
maybe dumb question but i just want it to look right and to do it only once.

The mounting flange allows you to put siding right up to the edge of the panel so all you will see is the panel just barely past your finished siding.

this flange comes out 2" from the nailing flange, way past where the stucco will be (1+ inch stucco), i've never seen a panel installed with this sticking out. also the doors will be out past the stucco by at least 1/2 inch.

Remove stucco and whatever else is there right down to the 2x4 or 2x6 whatever you have and nail the box right to the framing and once inspected go ahead and repair stucco. It's made to mount the panel and prevent your stucco from interfering with the proper operation of the doors.
