    Can’t line Up waste, please help

    I’ve replaced basin in bathroom with a deeper one and find the waste outlet is too high for my fittings. Would it be ok to shorten the threaded part of the click waste by about 2 cm? All the parts are chrome brass so don’t want to change to plastic. Any ideas? Help please.
