Microwave trim issues

I picked up a Panasonic NN-SD975S and 30" trim kit. The micro fits the space just fine but the trim kit needs the opening to be larger so its clips can be attached. Do you know of alternate clips that could be sunk into the flat cabinet (outside the opening)? Or do I need to have someone cut the opening larger? Can someone even doe that long after the cabinets are in place? I would think there would be alternate brackets that could be drilled into the cabinet face for the trim to clip to.

I mainly ask because I'm not seeing any trim kits out there that are this odd size. Previously I had a GE (builder install) but even the GE microwaves don't seem to want this size opening. The old trim kit was screwed directly into the panel.
