Questions about mounting GT TB

Okay, I've seen many people speak about cutting off the lower left tab on the TB using a dremmel to help it clear the egr valve (i think ). I have two questions 1. I have the RPW Spacers, from the original group buy, will this spacer be enough to help it clear it without cutting it off? and 2. If not, what did you guys use to hold it in place while you cut the tab. I'm afraid of using a table vise because of the electronic harness on the side of the tb. If anyone can answer please and thank you And as we must always and unfortunately state, I did search, through quite a few threads, and just not finding the right info. Thank you.

zedawg has a spectacular aura about
cutting the tab is very easy...just hold it down with 1 hand and cut with the saw using your other hand...takes like 2 minutes to cut with manual saw

Okay wasn't sure how strong it was. Thanks man. Btw I didn't get a chance to tell you but one set of lights came in, I installed. Went well. But curious, what did you use to mount them under the dash? I tried gorilla glue but surprisingly it didn't hold.

hot glue is the best way for a stong installation that won't do damage if you remove it later
