Tmi dash not fitting

Hi guys,i got a 1970 fastback. It has no dash ac but I figured I'd order a tmi dash with ac vents and add them. My problem is the tmi dash isn't fitting. It doesnt match up to the orginal holes for the bolts and not only that the pillars (between door and front windshield) on the sides are to big for the dash to fit. Any suggestions be appreciated.

I wasn't sure about cutting holes yet and finding out it silly won't fit. It for sure won't fit with these pillars in. The bottom part is to fat. The dash says it fits 1969,1970 fastback. I was thinking maybe the 1969 is different fit. Are the pillars in the 1969 different shape maybe?
I got the part from cjpony and they don't know anything of their products. I'll try calling tmi then updating here.

For anyone considering the tmi dash. You need to drill new holes into the car and you'll need to cut the a pillars to make it fit. I just returned it going to stick with the orginal look.
