Need Help Installing JVC Head Unit

I just purchased a 2006 cobalt LT, and I'm looking to install the head unit from my previous car. I went to a few stores and the only wiring harness I could find for the car costed 100 bucks. I'm thinking to myself there's no way I'm spending almost what I bought my head unit for on a wiring harness. Is there any way to wire it up using the factory harness? Thanks in advance for any help.

Do it right spend the money an enjoy your unit. But you can probably do a lot better on line for the proper harness. Enjoy your music with peace of mind, don't cheap out!!!!

I agree with spending money and doing it right the first time, but I just moved, have a baby on the way, and just started a new job, so my bank account for things that aren't necessities is practically nothing for a few weeks. Looking for the cheapest way to get some music playing honestly.
