Thats pretty sweet looking. I've been entertaining the idea of making something similar. I want a rig that will work for both racing and flight, and have some type of easily removable yet sturdy keyboard/mouse stand for playing anything else.
If you made a detachable pedal set and detachable wheel you could easily change from car to aircraft sim. You could put the throttle quadrant in front of the gear shift and higher up and the gear shift could stay without interfering with the aircraft throttles.
Ideally for a flight sim a G1000 screen setup with a more distant set of screens for the outside view would be best.

My flight sim is a little more realistic though.

My rig is coming along. Got it painted and it's probably the only rig with an M2 Comp grille.
