hump cutting question

I have a 1970 nova that was originaly a column shift car. I am putting in an M-21 with a hurst comp shifter. What I need to know is what is the best way to know where to cut the hole for the shifter and how big to make it.

Install the trans without shifter, hold shifter closely in place, mark floor from underneath, then slowly start cutting out hole making it large enough for shifter to function properly. Most of the factory holes I've seen looked as if they were cut out with an axe...not very pretty. But you wont see it once the boot is on.

I had a 70 Nova with a factory floor shift 3 speed. The factory cut hole was far bigger than it needed to be. When I put an M21 in the car with a Hurst Competition Plus shifter I had to close the hole up a bit with some sheet metal for the Hurst boot to fit.
