You may want to put a diode on the red X, not sure there.

(cardomain hates me right now, so it'* pretty funny)

Oh... That'* part of the source file, disregard it.

You may want a diode, I don't know... I can wire anything, but designing stuff with other than switches lights or motors just isn't my thing.

If you use flip flops, you'll need a chip. If you use a chip, you'll need a 5 volt regulator to adapt the 12 volt supply. All can be had for well less than 10 bucks, relay included. If it'* something you're still interested in, or anyone for that matter, I'll post a schematic with pinouts, part numbers, and directions.
