Back up light wiring

I am wiring up some back up lights but im not sure how to do it.

I want them to come on when the stock rev lights come on, but I want to have a switch on that relay, so I can turn it off so they wont come on when the stock lights come on. I also want to be able to have a switch that will have them on constantly, with out having the stock rev lights on. Im not sure how to wire this, heres what I have so far, if you could fill in the rest that would be great.

I cant really tell you how to wire it but this may help. I would think you would just have to add another switch to put power to the relay to make it work the way you want.

Use a SPDT switch, up would be on, middle would be off and the bottom would be on with reverse. Thats what I plan on doing at least.
