How to adjust display position?

I recently replaced my cracked bezel on my mbp (silver keys). The new bezel is not made by apple and the dimensions are a little off on the inner frame. so now about a third of my menu bar is being cut off by my replacement bezel. Everything else fit perfectly when i did the replacement, and i have made no installation errors.
My question is, Is there any way to adjust the position of my viewable screen?(remember manually doing this on old crt monitors). All I would like to do is move the menu bar down about 2-3 mm.

You'll need to use either SwitchResX or DisplayConfigX to set a custom resolution.
My guess is that once you adjust the resolution to bring the menu bar within the viewing area, you're going to have a black bar at the bottom.
Adjusting screen position is a parameter of the monitor. I know of no app that will do that on the OS side.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
