It's certainly possible, but it's not going to be a simple matter of
plugging in relays.  You will have to do some major wiring hackage.
I don't think it's going to be pretty at all.  You'll understand once you
figure out how it all works and how much wiring there really is.
Last I looked at the circuitry for my 90q, it seemed to me that if one got a
bunch of controllers for the driver's window, and put each other window
circuit into one each as it it were a driver's window, then one-touch would
be available to all.  Still more work than I thought it was worth.  For just
the driver's window on a car without it, on the other hand, it might be cost
effective to add just one controller.
