SPAL Shaved Door Handle Kit

Anyone have any success installing a SPAL Shaved Door handle kit? I'm trying to wire in switches on the inside of the car to pop the doors. The emergency switch works, the remote works, but SPAL's tech guys tell me that they've had too much trouble with the interior switches so they don't even tell customers how to wire it. The old directions talk about wiring the green for passenger door and the grey wires for drivers door, then the other to chassis ground. I've tried wiring green to switch, then grounding the other side of the switch to the chassis, but nothing.

If the door latch actuators are working that makes it simple.
One wire of the actuators is grounded to the chassis.
The remote control receiver applies 12+ to the other wire on the actuator to make it pull the latch open.
Connect on terminal of a momentary button type switch (one for each door) to the fused 12+ source that now feeds the remote receiver.
Connect the other terminal of the switch to the wire that feeds it's respective door actuator.

Vicrod,
Thank you for the reply. Sorry, not very good with the electrical stuff. The remote is wired so that if the ignition is on, the remote will not actuate the solenoid. If I wire per your directions, will I be able to open when the ignition is on the on position?
