I just purchased a 135# elite screen starling tab tension 2 screen. I made a measuring error for my site for placement and now the screen does not fit by approximately 1/8" (it is so close!). This is due to the weight bar being a little longer than I had planned. Would it be possible to trim the weight bar by 1/8" on each side to allow for clearance in my space? Would this modification affect the tension system and the screen flatness? I found instructions on the elite site for replacing the weight bar end caps so I could follow those to remove them and simply shave off a very small amount of the weight bar on each side.

I wouldn't expect this to make a major difference and would certainly do it if I felt like I could cut it without breaking anything otherwise.
