I would say that you are on the right track here and your devotion to fixing this problem is awesome!

But I agree with everyone else here, the risk imo is high and if i were in your same situation, despite my experience with aggressive dogs, i would NOT try to solve this myself.

I'd get a consult from a REFERRED trainer/behaviourist that has a lot of experience with dog aggression. They see this pattern OFTEN and can likely tailor make a program for you and your dog. They may also see other things in the dog's immediate environment and interaction that you do not notice.
Please keep us updated and good luck!
