I cut 2" off of the one on my Cross Roads.
I covered the shield on both sides with painters tape to avoid scratches and damage.
Then I used a protractor to mark the line on it.
I then cut the shield with a band saw, leaving about 1/16 of an inch to grind.
Then I used a belt grinder to get the cut somewhat uniform and smooth.
Next I used a file to further smooth the edge.
When I had it shaped and smooth, I then used 500 grit sand paper to sand and polish the edge.
I then removed the tape and installed it.
It turned out great.
It took about an hour and a half. I wanted to make sure it had a good finish.
