Off Road Lighting Wiring

I have a 20" SR series rigid industry light mounted on my hood along with a pair of PIAA 510's mounted on mirror mounts.

I would like to have both of these lamps run off of one main power switch mounted on my shift lever. The problem I'm having is that i know how to run both lights off of one switch (how its set up now), I would like to have it so that i could have 2 separate toggle switches mounted somewhere else in the vehicle. The reason for this is that the switch on the shift lever is the main power, while the other two switches determine which lights get turned on when I hit the main power switch.

Any help on how to wire this would be greatly appreciated.

Use a couple of relays like this. (sorry for the primitive sketch)

Thank you for the response,

I ended up sitting down with a couple of extra wiring harnesses and was able to figure it out the good old fashioned way of trial and error. I ended up with two switches inside my glove box that controls which of the two lamps if not both is turned on when I press the primary switch on the shift lever.

Once again thank you
