If just trimming a file is the route, alum is soft as you know take advantage of that . use some tape, green,blue whatever to mask the area front and back, protect the finish . Mark the areas to be trimmed and have at it .. it will not take long

nix on the Jig saw, it will have that panel flopping around on your bench like a fish out of water .
