How much too tall are they? I had a tall set, but I needed them for my staggered engines. 1 riser fit just under some fiberglass on the side of the engine compartment. I brought that riser to a friend with a welding shop. He cut it down just over 2" and TIG welded it back together. The bung is now 1" from the flange. I polished all of the welds and you can't tell it from any of the other risers.

So it sounds like it's not a catastrophic issue. At my closest guess, I'd say that the risers are 1-2 inches too high on the outboard side only. The inboard risers look like they will clear the hatch without modification.

Can anyone recommend a good welding shop in or around Charlotte NC that could do the work?
