Yeah, Me Too!!! I am a bit confused as usual, though. Your blurb says '69, and '69's just have a hole in the tunnel for the shifter so this won't happen. My '68, 4 speed console is a bitch. I bought all the new stuff, too. The rubber piece that goes over the shifter handle lasted about 3 minutes, couldn't even move the shifter. The black plastic slider was real stiff, so I trimmed the sides a bit, maybe a bit too much. Now, if I shift fast, the plastic slider pops out of the console and jam's the shifter. Also, I had to move the console rearward 2" to clear the "replacement" Comp Plus. Should have moved it back another half inch, now, in forth, the slider goes too far back, and jams on the front of the hole!! I think I'm gonna just throw the slider away and leave it with a hole in the console and the OEM rubber floor boot underneath. I might try to adapt a '69 shifter tunnel piece to close off some of the hole.
