Hello galaxiex,Nice that you have the rod for the C6.
It should be very close for working with the FX trans.
Little off topic but for my 66 500XL I wanted the cool jewel indicators for the shifter,
even tho the 66 did not come that way from factory.
I have a busted up console from a 69 XL but the jewel plate was still good.
I cobbled together some bits and pieces and made it fit my 66 console.
Fabbed up the aluminum plate that fits over the jewel plate
Then I went even farther and used individual LED's to light up each gear position.
This required making a small circuit board,
and the hard part...
Fabricating a linkage to operate a 6 position rotary switch to turn on each LED.
The big holes in the console top plate are for gauges.

Quite a bit of time consuming fab work, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Not "quite" done with it yet, but I think it's gonna look and work ok.
Sorry for the off topic.
I'm not one to usually comment, but you sir did a really nice job on this. This is the kind of work that tickles my fancy more than anything else. Bloody brilliant! I'd like to see more pictures if you have them.
