Removing the Source Progress Bar?

We’ve all been there - This ugly grey box built-in to Source games, that tell you you’re loading what it’s doing, etc…

Recently I created a custom loading screen, with my own progressbar (which not only makes the grey box obsolete), but the grey box currently covers up part of the progressbar.

Is there a way to remove Source’s greybox from appearing? Or do I just have to work around that?

Work around it.
