Arrow My 1st Kimber and a Issue..Any Advice?

I bought a used Kimber 1911 II in 9mm. Zero issues at first. I wanted to build a Range Gun. So I bought a Fusions Firearm Flared Magwell and Main Spring Housing.
Got it installed and now the ( usure of proper names ) grip safety pin under slide that activates the firing pin block, slightly protrude the frame now and the slide wont reassemble over or past it.
What have I done and how do I correct it?

Relieve the inside surface of the mainspring housing where the tabs of the grip safety engage it. The msh top tabs are thicker holding the grip safety inward forcing to the plunger to sit high.
