And one other thing to keep in mind if you're going to "hide" it like I did - when you do that, you will be covering up the clutch lever. Luckily (?) I've got smaller hands than anyone I know so on the rare occasion I would need the clutch I can reach behind that plate and still turn it, but just barely. So just be sure to account for that when doing your cutting. And good luck!
Oh, and I also recommend adding the wireless controller while your at it. But that might just be me.
