Question Aftermarket Power Locks and Windows on Stock Switches...

I have a 06 LS with manual everything and I'm sick of it, just sick of it... sooo I figured I'd buy some black LT doors from my local scrap yard with the power window, mirrors, and locks switch in them, only to realize, how the hell would i wire any aftermarket power options to said doors, has anyone done this? I'm not sure how the wiring for the switches or aftermarket powers work so any tips would be great, i'll be doing the install myself so if there is any DIY's that i just cant find that'd be even better.

also in a side note i went to my local dealership and asked if they could install power everything in my balt and that i had the doors and switches, but he said that that was physically impossible, that you cant use OEM power options if u don't already have them........ now i call BS but if u guys have any insight on that that'd be great. Thanks.

i know i have been looking it to it and its pretty expensive just to buy the parts.. imo the cheapest way would be to buy the whole door for both sides and your would have to change almost everything around... and then get the wire harness for it and then flash the computer... now thats a very basic thing that i have gathered. there's probably alot more to it, or may i'm wrong altogether not to sure .

i don't really need to have OEM parts I just want to wire the aftermarket stuff to the stock switches if that's possible, i cant imagine that it would be THAT hard maybe a couple extra steps like giving the switches power, but then again....its chevy so I'm sure they've made everything impossible to do like they always do, but there's gotta be some way to do it, as complicated as it may be
