So the pinout was the same, just different colored wires?

Congrats on getting it working!

I gotta learn how to do this kind of board work and also read electrical wiring diagrams in a much more detailed manner.
Wiring diagrams aren't too too hard to read, but in some places I think that I would get confused by exactly how much current is supposed to be going through some areas, and how much resistance other areas are supposed to have. Would also help to know how the components and switches are laid out.

It seems like a whole nother world of cheap mods (and mods in general) seem to open up with this kind of knowledge.

I don't think i'd want to MAKE computer boards, but working on them to do random stuff would be kinda fun.

Do you guys have any good resources to start with?
Particularly in automotive?

Ouch, for that price you can have a nice 2DIN navigation unit and the Metra kit.
