GE OEM Cruise Control Retrofit? Any successful ones?

I am sure this has been covered, but I could not find it using the search function.
I recently picked up a used 10' Tidewater Blue BASE model Fit as a commuter.

I did not think to look for cruise control on the car when purchasing it. Realized it did not have it when I got it home (wasn't a big deal breaker anyway), I looked into options.
I see an aftermarket version but at $300, I figured why not look into OEM stuff w/ used parts seeing how these cars are old.

Anyway, my research has brought me here SO FAR:

The Fit uses the gauge control module as it's cruise control module.
Using a scanner, I performed a component output test and saw my Gauge Module DOES in fact have the Cruise lights in it.
I was found when monitoring live data in the Gauge Control Module, there are information lists for cruise control. Making me believe it will in fact work w/ a base instrument cluster.

I Purchased the cruise control buttons w/ harness for Clock spring. I found the Clock spring DOES NOT HAVE THE PINS for the cruise control. '
Also found I will need to add wiring from the Clock spring connector to the gauge control module as the cruise control switch inputs are not there.

This is where it gets tricky.
I now have to purchase a clockspring from a fit with cruise control. Better yet I am purchasing one w/ steering wheel audio controls as well so I can wire that up.
