I read all the DIYs and theres a couple of bits that confuse me.

I found all the parts I need, the mometary start button, the relay, wires, etc. but I don't know how to wire it up.

Im going to use spade connectors to plug wires into the relay.

what I want to do is a simple push start, while still being able to start using key (so i'm tapping only). I've got wire taps on hand already as well.

the relay is a 30amp/12v 4 prong,

also which wire is the accessory ground? (what color...) if I can't find the accessory ground, where else can i ground the switch?

its confusing as hell I need help. I just need someone to finish this diagram below.

also where do you get the start decals?

Ground is ground, man. You can use anything. Just find a piece of metal of some sort. I don't remember what I used, but it wasn't hard to find.

This link should answer any and all questions you might have. It's very similar to the DIY I used when I did mine. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
