Reviving this thread,

Just got the malossi kit for my ZA50 and the skirt hits as well just the way the picture above shows. Was curious what the best way to trim the skirt would be?

I dont have any major machining equipment, was thinking maybe a chop saw with metal bit, or sanding on a flat surface or anything that MA can help brainstorm.

Attached are some pics of the piston, was also curious after the skirt is trimmed, do i need to modify the edges that are trimmed to mimic the angle inside the piston?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
