Get 2 files. 1 that is kind of 'heavy duty' and 1 that is much finer.

It takes around 10-15 minutes per truck. Best to put them in a vice first.

I used a dremel, not that heavy duty and very good.

A needle file set will cost you only a couple bucks and does the job. Its what I always use for small precision filing jobs like that..
