Modern wiring in '40 Ford

I'm starting to rewire my '40 Ford using a Ron Francis kit.
The problem at hand is that I want to use the original ignition "on-off" switch on the column drop and the push button starter instead of the Francis provided ignition switch.
I suspect I'll need to modify the power lead to the power panel by inserting a continuous use solenoid so that the tiny "on-off" switch doesn't fry. However, I can't figure out how to keep the ability to switch on lights, blow the horn, etc. without having the ignition on that the Francis panel provides.
Can someone show me a diagram of how to wire this up using the Francis panel?
