Cutting a small piece off winch bumper

Bought the arb-type winch bumper from Tony (Abrooks) - and noticed that a mounting arm rubbed up against a metal oil cooler line when installed. I could have the line moved slightly (guessing) or possibly cut/sand down a small 2cm x5mm section to stop the rubbing. If I went with the latter, what is the best way to remove a chunk from the bumper?

Steve-
Depends on the angle you have for access. Quick and dirty with an angle grinder (with the cut off wheel) would work. Slow and steady with a jig saw & a metal blade could work too. Many other options depending on what's in your garage too.

Personally with stuff like that I'd mark it and hit it with the angle grinder, but that's b/c I'm not patient.

Ah, that should work - my angle grinder is somewhere in the garage.. Thanks, Ray.
