I have attached to this post a project that contains the code needed to remove the masks of the bars. I have also attached a snapshot of the result that I get when I run this project. As you have specified I have used assemblies from 2012.03.26 so you should get the exact same behavior on your side.
Let us know if this works as you expect.
