    Thanks, Rabbit and Trevor. Sanding worked alright on the straight areas, but this lip is only about 2 or 3 mm deep, and in the sharply rounded curve at the bottom the sandpaper didn't cut much. The guitar gods must have been smiling down, as I got away with the use of the Dremel. I do appreciate the suggestion on shaving the plastic cover plate. Pocket knife probably a no go.

    I would not use a pocket knife, but if you have those skills if could work.

    A furnature or paint scraper...or maybe even a razor blade pulled rather than pushed...?

    Thanks again to both. I haven't tried the fit again. After adding a little paint and sealer around the edges of the route, I decided on a few more layers of clear coat. We are planning a little travel, so it will have a couple of weeks to cure thoroughly.
