Voigtlander Lens Hood Blocking Step Up Ring?

Hi All,

Love the forum and first time poster.  I'm using a Sony a7iii with a Voigtlander 40mm f/1.2 lens and attempting to combine it with a step up ring to make this setup compatible with Smallrig's 2660 Matte Box.

The issue I'm having is the step up ring I've ordered isn't reaching the len's internal threads due to a fixed steel lens hood (think I'm using the correct terminology here but please correct me if not) that appears to be unique to this lens.

Does anyone know of a potential solution for this?  Wondering if individual stacking step up rings might do the trick as they could gradually expand without hitting the interior of the protruding lens hood potentially?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
