    Below is how I currently have the Hella 500 lights wired up. Using a Toyota fog light switch (Part #00550-35976) to power on/off. I plan on adding another Toyota fog light switch next to it to power on/off some interior led lights.
    For the second switch, can I run a wire for each connection over from the first switch?
    Thanks for your help.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    You don't want the red wire connected on the right switch. That wire should go to your interior lights.

    Good catch. That will be going to the Interior LED Lights. I'll edit the pic.

    The fuses are on the ground side? Shouldn't it be fuse>relay>switch>ground? I suppose it ultimately doesnt matter, just goes against typical practice, to have the breaker after the load.

    Though the diagram has a poor color choice it is fused on the positive and fine as it is.
