Default Spec C MY06 steering wheel on WRX/STI 02.. How?

Maybe someone can help me out on this. I recently got a brand new Spec C 2006 airbag steering wheel to install on my 02 STI that has a bigger one. Everything fits perfectly but wires and airbag/horn connectors are different. I've seen some store that sells the steering wheel as a kit saying that some cutting/soldering must be done. Anyone knows what goes where?
Thanks a lot for helping

The horn should be plug and play. The length of wire is a little short for the newer wheel, but it'll reach.

As for the airbag.
Just swap the explosive (8mm nuts). The harness changed throughout the years but the bolt pattern has not. It's possible the explosive has gone through a design change for the different steering wheels though. When/if you do this. Remember it's comprimising your life and safety.

I've done this on a few cars.
It is not the same. The airbag harness is different.

I felt kind of stupid now that I've swapped the explosive and fit the all thing in 5 minutes! I thank you a lot for the suggestion also if that turned me nervous... I've been watching the damned thing for a week thinking about how to find the missing airbag plug instead of get 4 nuts loose and solve!
The good stuff is that now I have 3 friends stucked with the same problem and I'll be happy to gift them some "stupidity feeling" as well!!

Thank you

Glad to hear you got it in.

On my first try, I spent an hour trying to dissasemble the harnesses then noticed the bolt patterns were the same.
