Default Bar behind stereo in 2 din replacement? Remove or shave down?

Hey all.

I bought the replacement plastic on ebay for a 2 din stereo and put in an aftermarket headunit but there is that thick plastic in the way behind the stereo which won't allow me to fully close and clip back the center console with the head unit attached.

How do you guys take care of it? Shave it down? If so.. how much do I shave it down? Any tips for knowing how far?

Or do you cut it off completely and let the back portion of the head unit hang in the air?

I have a crappy dremel... wish I had the dremel max so I could shave it down more quickly.

I also have a sawzall if I should cut the bar off completely.

LASTLY.... is it completely plastic or is there a metal bar inside of it?
