enabling selectshift from steering wheel (w/ paddles)

Purpose of this post is for people with dct and planning on
Installing paddles that would like to change to sport mode WITHOUT
having to use shifter.

For me, having paddles but still having to reach down to go in/out of sport mode is
not ideal, I would like to turn sport mode on/off with a switch, mounted on or close
to steering wheel.

Hopefully other people more technically inclined then me, and interested in this can bounce around some ideas on how to implement?

Not many people have done the necessary steering wheel edits. I would like to, but haven't yet.
