if it's too long you want all the shims on the outside so the pulley half will snug up against the alternator as close as possible and push the belt as high on the pulley as possible and tighten, I believe you should have 6 shims.

If you are using a belt from autozone it is most likely going to be in inches so probably not going to be quite right because when I went to the auto parts store (checker, autozone) belts were only available in .5 inch incriments. To get it perfect I would buy the 710 mm or the 725 mm, not sure which your car uses but it should be one of those.
