How about some rubber or plastic gromets from the hardware store?

Yeah, I'd just leave it. You'll never find a slider that will fill it evenly without cutting more, and just trying to shave down a little bit of that plastic will either crack it, or destroy any paint in the area.

That's what I would try if it was mine.

I agree, if you source just the right black rubber grommet it would look slick.
