Re-trucking with TMW Dalman 2-level


In my effort to upgrade my Red Caboose CGW X-29 style boxcars with the new TMW Dalman trucks I have a problem. It appears that the TMW Dalman truck side frame interferes with the carbody bolster by about 0.010". Anyone else with this problem?

Shims between the body and truck bolster will result in the coupler being too high. I am considering removing the modeling draft from the top of the truck sideframe to gain clearance but that may only gain about 0.005". Suggestions please.
