Default wiring help with piaa 510's

I have a set of piaa 510 driving lights and need help figuring out how to wire them. I'd like to have the lights wired similar to how the fogs are, so that they turn on and off with the headlights high beams and also have a switch to turn them off even when highbeams are activated.

I have an extra factory fog light switch that I want to use instead of the supplied piaa switch if possible. I have a wiring diagram of the foglight switch to help, but can't really understand how I'd hook up those 5 wires of the factory switch to the piaa harness. Also how will I get a switched positive from the high beams to the light switch, since subaru uses switched grounds? Am I going to have to just cut up the piaa harness and get a different relay to even make this possible? I hope someone can make sense of my questions. Thanks. This is going in a '99 outback.

i could see how to do it with the piaa switch the stock one may be a bit off....if you use the piaa one all you do is splice in the piaa switch wire into the high beam wire. if the switch is active, whenever you arm the high beams, the lights will come one. yet you can still use the switch to shut the 510's off...

I thought the way the headlights were wired was one constant positive, and then 2 wires that were each a switched ground for high beam and low beam, or am I wrong? Maybe I'll just tap into that wire and just do a test run and see if it works.

Never mind, I figured out how to wire it up using a factory switch, if anyone needs help doing the same thing let me know.
