Question night blade wiring help

Almost done with my DIY 325mm night blades, first set and ran into a dilemma. I've got a 3pin strip connector so I can use the align night blade charger left over from those lackluster 3k night blades, and a tiny 3 position switch I got from I'm at kind of a loss as to the best way to wire them. The positive copper strip is on top and ground is underneath. On the switch the two center pins are ground and the outer pins are positive, tho they could be reversed.

I used a micro switch to avoid those pesky jumpers even tho I have half a dozen of them. I'm looking for a way to wire this up without any overlapping copper tape, even If I have to do a lap around the blade with copper wire. Any suggestions?

BTW the part number for the switch is 611-ayz0103agrlc. They were super cheap and Im pretty sure digikey has them as well.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
