KISS or Kustom

I am rewiring my 1940 Hudson/Chevy pickup. I had a pretty spectacular fireworks dispaly in my cab since there were no fuses at all (not my doing).

I have an EZ Harness, but I keep getting caught up in the planning phase. I keep wanting to add things like a dome light, back-up lights, wipers, push-button start, etc.

My new idea is having multiple toggle switces control everything instead of having multi-position switches like headlight and key switches. There is a big hole in my dash for a radio that I can make a panel to stick these in (there are no door locks, so there is no way that I am going to put a stereo in this thing).

Is this a good idea or will it just stall this project? Should I add all the extra stuff or just wire what I have this weekend to get the thing running? There are some shows coming up and I don't want to have to go to them in My '91 Olds Calais 442 (you know, the piece of junk with a 4-cylinder and a spoiler) cursing myself for not having my truck ready.
