DPDT Toggle switch for Turn Signals... Help!
First and foremost...I'm an idiot when it comes to electrical stuff even wiring diagrams look like hieroglyphics to me.

Alright, that been said....I want to relocate the turn signals in my project using an ON-OF-ON toggle switch that looks like this:

Now, there are 5 wires coming out of the stock turn signal switch, like this:

So, here is what I know..
*First one on the left (brown) is for left turn signal.
*The green one is for the right turn signal.
*The black one is ground.
*The other 2 are coming from the flasher relay and both are live.

OK...is there anyone who can in simple English tell me how this wires should go in the toggle switch? (First picture)

Thanks in advance
