Flat Towing ..... tips, helps, thoughts

I've towed stuff all over the West but always on a trailer, never flat towed a vehicle.

I'm delievering the tow vehicle and towed vehicle (500 miles) and don't want to rent a trailer or leave mine 500 miles from home.

What do I need to do?
I have built the "A" frame & a light bar and mounted them to the towed vehicle.
I was going to 'tie down' the steering wheel but how are you guys doing it?
Tieing down hard or loose with some slack? (vehicle doesn't have a key locking steering wheel).
What are you tieing it down to? Wing window frame (doesn't sound safe??) Brake pedal? or ??????
Anything else I should be aware of? I don't want to "learn any lessons" on this trip.
