Wiring exotic option without relay

I bought a bumper pole for my car. It's an 89 Honda Prelude. If anyone doesn't know what this is, it's a little light up antenna on the front bumper that helps you park (silly I know). Anyway, it didn't come with the required relay switch, so I want to rig something so it will work. What I have is the bumper assembly, which has three wires and ground. Two of the wires make the antenna go up and down depending on which way the polarity is configured. The other makes the thing light up. I have an interior switch as well. What you do is press the switch, and the antenna goes up and lights up. When you press it again, it goes down, and turns on.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how to wire this? Is there a specific relay I would need to hook up to this to make it switch the polarity when the interior switch is pressed?

What other information about the device and switch would I need to figure out to proceed?

The plugs are all different though. I don't think I can follow that. I was going to use two STDP relays to reverse the polarity for the antenna when the interior switch is thrown, and also complete the light circuit at the same time. Ground it, and put inline fuses somewhere.

Would this work in theory? Where should I put the inline fuses?
