Default Cheapest way to cut through 1/4" metal

Got my nendo F-34 batt in to replace my yellow top. It'll fit in the bank but there's this metal barrier or whatever you want to call it that doesn't allow it to when putting the batt in diagonally. Any ways here's the pics:

angle grinder and cutting disc from harbor freight. You could even return it if you want when you are done.

Jig saw or sawzall with metal blade, and as previously mentioned grinder with cut off blade. It would depend on what power tools you already have. A hacksaw would probably work as well if you got enough room That's a crossmember your cutting into, it will weaken your chassis after you cut. No biggie untill you hit something head on

I have a jigsaw and circular saw and that's it. But I'm not sure the blades I have on them are able to cut through the crossmember. I'm only cutting to the black rubber hood stopper. Still weakening the chassis regardless? Well what blades would you recommend on the jigsaw? Or can I just go to home depot and fine the blades that say they cut through metal? Also I feel like my jigsaw isn't powerful enough lol it's a cheap one.

If it was me the only way I would alter the core support bracket is if I were removing it completely and replacing it with one made to allow the clearance for the battery and still have at least as much structural integrity as the factory piece.

jig saw is gonna hack that shit up real ugly. Harbor freight has grinders for less than $20 sometimes.

You might even be able to use a cutting disc on your circular saw.

Pretty awesome advice from everyone. Would I be able to weld the piece back on if it's not cut up too bad or will the blade knock off too much metal to even put back on?
