Canomod Canopy Good NEWS -- Bad NEWS

I have been practicing in Phoenix Sim with the Trex 500 Sport model. I got tired of the stock canopy so I imported a canopy scheme in the Canomod USA colors. Pretty cool. Now I gotta have that canopy on the real heli so last Saturday I ordered one from Heli Direct. It arrived today and is installed on the heli. It really looks sharp. I am VERY pleased with how it looks!!! And how quickly it arrived. Good Job Helidirect. Well packed and quick handling of my order!!!

That was the good news, now the bad news:

The darn thing is gonna rub the main gear on the right side.

Now what?

Do I attack it with an Xacto knife to relieve the rub or do I run it and let the gear take care of the rub?

What do you guys think I should do and sending it to you is not an option.
