You can use a fine blade, dremel, etc.... but put tape there so the carbon doesn't flake/fray/chip as you cut.

Oh, and I've heard you can use clear nail polish, or a similar epoxy to "seal" it from cracking further later on. Though that suggestion comes from carbon bicycles with chips in them.

The can isn't structural; since the cut portion is beyond The portion riveted for the base plate. I hadn't had any problems w ones I've done.

The nail polish mention would solidify any chipping concerns. From exterior influences.
