Default Fixing canopy skirt interference

My canopy skirt fit perfectly before paint, but I somehow forgot that paint adds thickness. Now it's a bit tight. I can't close it from inside, but I can from outside. When I do, it feels like I might not be able to get it open again!

I'm thinking of filing the inside of the windscreen fairing as much as possible, and see if I can get it to work. Otherwise, I'm facing more serious work and taking it back to the paint shop for a touch-up.

Anyone have any other hints or ideas, besides leave room for paint next time?
