Stealthy injector kill switch, 6th Generation Civic

EDIT: the switch build write-up is in post #3

I'm about ready to install my kill switch for my 1998 manual trans Civic DX, but I have a question. In the picture attached, do you think the switch I bought will serve (after I remove the door jamb plate)? I am emulating this design plan: ...but with a twist...

What I plan to do is insert the switch into the OEM (auto trans) shifter I bought (also in the picture). The 6th Gen auto had that button on the faux stick-shifter to prevent accidental selecting of reverse or park ... I'm going to slip my switch into the shifter knob. The switch from pepboys and the shifter's button housing are almost perfectly matched... the switch should work, yes? No?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
