I replaced my stock MGA rubber pedal cover with a Paddy Hopkirk metal
pedal from Moss. You'll notice that the stock rubber cover is quite
thick and brings the face of the pedal forward of the plane of the brake
and clutch pedal. I found it impossible to toe-heel downshift with the
stock cover because of the difference. I'm not sure if replacing the
stock cover will make a noticeable difference in stretching your leg a
little bit, but you can try just removing it to see.
