2007 Classic front center window glass/frame interference

I am looking for a little advice. My center front window frame appears to be made a little too small for the glass. The glass contacts the lower frame when closed. It appears there is a slight upward curve to the lower horizontal frame and the glass just contacts it in about a 6" area at the center of the window. It has always been like this and just causes a little more effort to open the window using the inside handles. However, I am camping on the beach this week and enough blowing sand got in between the glass and the frame that I was worried I was going to break the glass while opening it.
I have loosened the 4 screws which attach the window glass to the hinge in an effort to find just a little more clearance. None to be had.

Should I use a power detail sander to remove just a little aluminum from the center of the frame? I only need maybe .020" or so. Is that frame an extruded cast piece with a lot of "meat" to it?
