Fitting Kirkey seats is not just a bolt in. The problem is the roll bar design won't let me have the seat back tilted enough so I will need to use a different steering wheel with less dish. We are mounting the Kirkey brackets to the stock seat tracks that will need to be modified.

I'd love to know what steps were involved on a Mustang. It's the wheel closer to you now?
The steering column had to be cut about 3/8" for clearance for my fingers to be able to install and release the wheel. The first time I tried it once it snapped in place it almost cut my fingers. The original steering wheel nut that now holds the inner spline on had to be ground down because it did not allow the quick release adapter to go down far enough to snap into place. I bought a 3 bolt release because I already had a 3 bolt to 5/6 bolt steering wheel adapter. I may be a little closer but not much. They make a 5 hole release but I have a 5 and 6 bolt wheel and wasn't sure which one I would be using. If I had to do it again I would buy the 5 hole and not have the additional 1/2" adapter.
When did you cover the fake brake scoops on the quarters? Have always like this look and was wondering what it took to do it - besides hanging an entire 70 quarter panel.
When I bought the body from Hubert Platt in 1970 there were no quarter scoops because it was a Q code 1969 Boss 302 test car that Hubert saved from the crusher. July 1971 and built it into a Super Stocker and raced it at a few NHRA National events until the World Finals in Texas where they wanted me to install scoops because all Mustangs except Boss 302's had quarter scoops and I was racing a 428. They let me race but I had to install scoops before going to Pomona in Feb 1972. There were no brackets in the quarter so we had to fab a C bracket to hold them in place. When I restored the car around 2005 I removed the scoops and welded in a patch panel. The only aftermarket panel on the car is the front valance.
