Default 38-04 rear window

Rear window evenly drilled and tapped. Looking at the fit of the F-01474 stiffener angles and the window extends to the level of the second hole down. The rear flange of the stiffener interferes with the window. Am I better to carefully reduce window width or trim the stiffener to fit? I'm inclined to trim the window.

I trimmed the window, trying to avoid making any sharp corners.. Seemed to work fine

All is trimmed, holes drilled and countersunk.
What is best practice for the inside-window side of the hole. A few turns with the deburr countersink? Or overthinking it.

I also found a new way to burn my finger today. When countersinking the outside of the window holes the pilot on the countersink gets pretty hot.....
