Wiring diagrams needed

I recently purchased an X2N (bridge), a Pro Track (middle), and a PAF Joe (neck) to replace my Ibanez RG570 pickups. I'd like to wire them in a specific way using a 5 way switch and a push-pull 500K Volume pot for coil tapping (and tone pot as well).

I'd like to Use the 5 way with volume pot in (off) full humbucker mode:
Position 1: X2N (Bridge - both coils)
Position 2: X2N + Pro Track (both coils on each)
Position 3: Pro Track (Middle)
Position 4: Pro Track + PAF Joe (both coils on each)
Position 5: PAF Joe (Neck - both coils)

With the volume pot out (on) single coil mode:
Position 1: X2N (Bridge - neckmost coil on)
Position 2: X2N (neckmost coil) + Pro Track (bridgemost coil)
Position 3: Pro Track (neckmost coil)
Position 4: Pro Track (neckmost coil) + PAF Joe (bridgemost coil)
Position 5: PAF Joe (neckmost coil)

I've checked out Dimarzio's diagrams but none of them achieve this. Do any of you have any wiring diagrams that would help me achieve this setup?

Thanks in advance.
