67 GTO steering column drop

I am doing some work behind and around the instrument cluster and am trying to drop the steering column as I have read about in various posts. The column seems to be secured by a heavy metal bracket which secures to the surrounding frame with two nuts up close to the driver and a bolt pretty far down toward firewall. This creates about an inch of give but doesn't seem to allow drop. I have disconnect speedo cable which is not creating resistance, which seems mostly to occur near firewall.
There is a bracket that surrounds the lower end of the column like so: [o] which has bolts holding the left and right sides of the bracket down there together. Must this get released too? Other advice? THANKS!!

Put two of the column support bolts back in to support the top of the column.
Loosen the clamp [o] then pop the two ribbed push pins that hold the lower skirt then the 5 bolts that hold the metal plate to the firewall.
Pop the plate loose and slide it towards to you a couple inches.
Pull the two upper bolts and the column will drop.
You may have to replace the two pins and the gasket Ames carries these parts.
