Skip, between the red and which blue dot?
I went back and numbered the snubbers in the Photo file to make it easier to reference.

I would open the loop, at the end between the red and blue dot and see if the snubber cools. Everything should still run fine. If you just cut it, it could be reconnected with butt splices if you indeed want to. I would leave it open, myself.
