New center console/radio trim layout?

Was thinking about how I can incorporate everything I want on the radio trim piece.

This is what I want in the dash:
Scangauge
2 toggle switches (1 for my amp, 1 for my LEDglow)
Push button start???
Throttle controller flush-mounted

And of course my single din headunit, since I've kind decided against getting a double din touchscreen.

Here's a little picture I messed around with on paint of a possible layout.



Any thoughts? Push button start I just kinda threw in their to fill up the space, its probably not happening. Also, I was thinking of modifying the dash kit so that the radio would be on bottom and the other stuff would be on top. Its simple enough to accomplish. I'd use ABS plastic to mount everything up and bondo is in place to make it look OEMish

2008 Versa S:
-Throttle Controller
-DC Exhaust+Intake
-Strut brace+Sway bar
-Spec-V Wheels
-H&R Sport Springs
-Navi HU, Pioneer Spkrs, 2x10" CV Subs.

Space below the single DIN unit seems great, better than blocking your pass airbag light with the throttle controller. I could see scan gauge there too, although I like having that storage space personally haha. What's with the clips on the vents?

Also you could maybe do a single DIN with a flip out screen

The clips are air fresheners. I have them in the outer vents as well. ANd If I was gonna do a touchscreen I'd want double-din or nothing. I hate slide outs especially if the car has room for a double din unit.

What are the two things that aren't the push start and the NTD? Foglight switch?

Anyway, can you fit the NTD and the scan gauge there? Is it tall enough for the scan gauge?

I might start on this project this weekend. I'm at least going to flip the radio so it's on the bottom and figure out how I'm gonna mount the throttle controller. The switched will be easy to mount up (Just screw then in through a hole).

I'm gonna have to make a plate that attaches to the front of the open radio cubby hole for it to work. I'm thinking of using 1/4 inch mdf for this, covered with black plastidip. I'm going to use plasti-dip on the rest of the center console anyways.

I also have to patch up a slight crack in the bumper this weekend, so there will be plenty of stuff going on with the Versa in my driveway

What do you guys think of all that?
