Now I'm going to do a little grinding and filing on the clamps to give them a softer look. I'm using a 1/4 in. radius gauge as a guide. I started out using the die grinder, but was concerned that I might snag the metal and bend the crap out of the bracket before it is finished. So I picked up one of my favorite tools and filed them by hand. It doesn't take long to remove aluminum with a file.

If you have to force it there must be a better way
