Don't know where to get a longer bolt, but I'd advise not to use a scissor or pvc cutter both will fray the cables. You won't get a clean cut and most likely f up the scissor. If you are going to have it done at the shop, just let the mechanic handle it, if not then go out and buy a good cable cutter from a hardware shop or spring for a shop quality Park one.
Get remember to practice safe braking with a condom or cable end cap on the cable ends so it doesn't fray on you.
