Question about what type of switch to use.

I don't know electronics that well so please forgive the ignorance.

I read this about switches:

and from what I understand I need a SPDT, Single Pole Double Throw switch, is that correct? Because I want to either continue the blue wire circuit or switch it to the ground (if you followed the tutorial I linked in my OP).

I found this switch at Radio Shack that I really like:

but it is listed as a SPST. Will this not work for me? I do not like any of the SPST switches listed on RS's website. I'm trying to stay way from the mad-scientist look in my car as this may become my wife's primary car in the future.

Recommend any other places to buy or different switches?
