07 focus se adding cruise control

Did a little searching and couldn't find anything about adding on cruise control to a manual transmission and a car that doesn't have it already. I'm thinking about trying to add it to my focus. If anyone has attempted this will I need to get a new steering wheel? I found a few things about getting the vehicle speed sense wire the tps wire and tach output and running them to a relay with a rocker switch and a toggle switch.

I can't help you with how to install, but I have a 2007 SE w/Cruise and all the controls are indeed on the steering wheel. There's also wiring to the clutch and brake pedals in addition to a second cable going to the throttle body. I can imagine that this one's not a straightforward addition.
