u want individuals, front, back, side, side, pancake and seesaw? if so you need 4 3 prong switches(for the individuals) 4 6 prong switches (for front/back/side/side control) and 2 12 prong switches for the pancake and seesaw. Unless you are good at electrical stuff and soldering, then you can use diodes and use all 3 prongs and save money. Talk to slammeddime for a good diagram, he helped me out.

What I would do is just buy a prewired switch box from like Gauge Magazine and then just take the switches out of the box. Then they are already wired up and u can put them where u want.

Dude dont do the diods I just tried it and I work at a place that has an electrical hop, i got everything for free and it was more hassle than anything. Try Suicidedoors they were selling pre wired boxes for 50 bucks.
