I did complete it actually. If you want the steering wheel controls you also need to purchase the second unit which is around 80 bucks. Almost more than the damn cd player but worth it IMO.

I could have swore I started a thread on this but I guess I didn't?!? Here you go!

First I soldered together the 2 connectors you get from crutchfield with the kit.

Then I went ahead and soldered the proper wires together that are needed for the steering wheel controls

I had to extend some wires, I also added a body ground, which probably wasn't necessary for the steering wheel controls since I probably could have just used the ground that the regular new connector has on it

Everything soldered together

Finished end result

Although now the stupid knobs don't look like that :)
