If I decide to go with the bail I will cut the tab off. Is there anything I should bear in mind when doing this. I know that minor nicks can cause an aluminum small aircraft wing spar to fail. I would want to cut it off near flush and finish with a grinder and then sand and polish and repaint the area.
