Dash stereo wiring pinout dsp

I'll start by saying I know this topic has been beat to death here. I apologize if I missed another post with the info I need. It's not for lack of trying.
I have a dsp system with nav and cassette. The wiring has been hacked by the previous owner. What I want to do is just remove the system and wire an aftermarket double din in the dash. I'd prefer to use the speaker level inputs for an aftermarket amp to simplify the wiring. The factory speakers will be replaced with coaxials. Can the steering wheel controls be integrated into an aftermarket unit?
I have read many threads about the problems integrating DSP with aftermarket. I am also aware of the problems with removing the OBC, it will be relocated. Please, no suggestions of dynavin or other units.
No disrespect to the sage advice of the forum, I just need the pinouts for the dash unit and wiring leading to the factory amp.

Thanks for the link. I'm in no real rush right now. I have too many irons in the fire as it is. Just wanting to have info when I get ready to tear into the mess that I have. Fortunately, the PO only mangled the wiring for the stereo. All else is intact.
