Push Button Start

So the electrical bug bit me, as did the safety bug.

I've relocated the battery to the trunk with a disconnect switch, installed an inline fuel lock solenoid, hood locks and a Grant security system. So far, so good.
Now, I'd like to use a hidden push button start switch as well as an ignition kill switch while still retaining the use of my ignition key.

Here is what I have in mind; flip a toggle switch, turn the key in the ignition all the way, and then finally use my push button to turn the car on.
I already have a 50amp toggle switch and a 60amp push button starter switch.

How would I go about this?
Is it as simple as splicing the toggle switch into the wire that goes to the keyed switch, and then splicing the push button into the wire that goes from the keyed ignition to the starter?
Would I need to use a relay of some sort?

The car in question is a 1976 Ford Granada, if that helps any.

What pray tell do you have invested in that 76 Ford Granada that warrants such technology?
