Other than that anything is possible.

The white painted pieces hold the back edges of the kick panels.
They screw to the car and the kick panel slides into the groove. A screw at the front of the kick panel holds the kick panel in place.

Just pour four qt's of fluid in the trans and start it and let it idle while you add the rest of the fluid.
The pump will fill the converter and it has enough fluid in it for start up lube.
