I Need Some Opinions Where To Put a Clock

Here's the deal. I'm looking for some feedback on where to put a clock I've got from a Ford Mondeo. The problem I'm having is that the head unit on the '05 to '07 surrounds isn't centered, so I can't decide where to put the clock so it'll look right. I figure I can balance it out with a switch or two on the surround, but can't decide which option I like better. Here's the two idea's I'm thinking of. Oh, and I suck at Photoshop.

Here's what it currently looks like...


Here's Option A...


and Here's Option B...


I'm also open to other suggestions, but I'd like to use the clock as an excuse to glass in the radio surround so it doesn't look so crappy. Thanks.

I would put the clock above the radio. It will look good either way. What are the switches going to run?

I debated the clock on top idea, but decided against it. As to the switches... One for the footwell lighting and one for my trunk heater.

I looked into that. There's a lot of metal back there that'll make things pretty hard.

I know that sounds a little odd, but with my last car, I went through 4 Xtant subs in one winter. The next winter I added a heater to my trunk. Never blew another sub. I'm not sure if there's any merit to that, but even basic physics says things tend to get more brittle when they're cold. I'm a firm believer that warm subs are happy subs.

Besides, if I ever kidnap a midget in winter (a full size person wouldn't fit), gag them and toss them in the trunk, there's no reason to be rude! I'm sure they'd appreciate a little heat.

Okay can you post a picture of your trunk heater? I have had that idea in my mind for a while because we have had 4 days with a high of 2 or less and have been wanting to keep the interior and electronics a little warmer. Actually pulled my subs and brought them in the dorm. I haven't figured out a solution to this problem yet so I kinda want to see how you did it.
