I think I might try your idea of shortening the hinge, but first I'm gonna take it back off to check the amount of travel. I can always adjust it and spoon it around after if it doesn't fit the best after doing that. the main issue is the back hitting. will probably cut it and just overlap it with two tacks to mock it up and while on the car, then take it off, scribe, cut and final weld. Not so intimidating once I thought about it for a sec. Thanks for the response.
