if you make it look like this diagram, you'll have everything in the right spot..

and you're quite good with mspaint... when I try drawing a wiring diagram/schematic, everything is just colourful blobs with labels to distinguish them.......

its worth noting that your 5 way switch looks different to that in the diagram. the diagram shows 2x4 and you have 1x8. its basically the right hand side in the diagram moved down below the other half, match it up with the two terminals soldered together

at 3 tho

the SD diagrams should keep you right.
