I did something very similar...I used a band saw to make the intial cut, then cut an additional half an inch off the metal plate so that the end of the cut plate would be more recessed under the rubber piece and not show so much. I then used a small cut piece of chrome door molding to cover the cut edges of the pedal plate...and sprayed the end of the rubber pad with some rattlecan stuff that is like the stuff they spray in truck bedliners. That covered up the metal inside the rubber from showing too badly. The rest was just shaping the end of the rubber to look decent. I used a grinding wheel at work for that.
I like to ride with my heel on the floorboard and my toe on the highway peg, but the brake pedal was just in the way. This was a great fix...
