shortened the brake, how about the shifter?

I shortened the rear brake pedal yesterday by about 7/8" and now I'm happy...Im debating whether to take 1/2" off the shifter, though the shifter is ok. anyone else do this, and if so, what did you think?

Where on the pedal did you slice off the 7/8"?

How small are you, tomla? My gear shift lever seems a bit short (size 12), but straightening it out helped.

I sliced the chunk out about 1" away from the toe pad. My shoe size is 11 US.
