OK guys,Here's a couple wiring diagrams for the Aux switch set up.
This first one is for the switch panel wiring.

If you look at the back of the Aux switch panel where the plug goes in,you will see on the right side there is a blank gap between the top pin and the second pin. Leave the hole in the wiring plug empty for this one.

The top left (1) and top right (7) are your 12v hot input wires. I just tied into the positive side of the drivers side 12v accessory plug on the dash panel for this connection.It's only hot when the ignition is on,so your switches only work when the ignition is on.
(2) is the ground wire,there is a grounding point behind the dash panel on the glove box side of the dash to wire the ground to.
Wires 3-6 are your output wires that go to the relays,and will be hooked up to the 85 side of the relay.

There's plenty of room behind the dash for all of the relays,and I just taped all of them together,and wired them up together.

Here's how to wire up the relays-

The Aux switch outputs go to the 85 side of the relay.
The Positive wire for your lights,etc. go on the 87 side of the relay.
The hot wire from the battery will go to the 86 side of the relay,and then make a jumper to the 30 side of the relay,and continue doing this for all of the relays and you will only have one wire coming from the battery.

I made a complete wiring harness with 5 different colored wires first,and noted what each color wire was for (switch 1-2-3-4,and battery).
There's a plastic block off plate on the firewall where the clutch pedal would go if it was a manual tranny.If you take that plate off,you can drill a hole in it to run your wiring harness through,and just seal it with some silicon when you get it all installed.
Wire the positive side of your lights to the switch harness,and I just ran the ground from the lights to the negative post of the battery.

Good luck,it's pretty simple to do this. If I can do it,anyone can!
