Warn winch help...

I was just given an M8000 warn winch, WITHOUT any control box or solenoids, etc.. All it has is the 3 posts (F1, F2, and A I think).
I have seen the post about testing the winch using these 3 points, but is there any way to DIY some solenoids, etc and have dash mounted controls? I have read about dash mounted controls, using the stock solenoids, etc..

Just guessing but I'd say that F1 , F2 would be the terminals for wench in and out. And A1 would be for the brake. So you would need 3 constant duty HD solenoids. One for wench in, one for wench out and one for the brake, this one would need to be wired so that it activates the brake each time either of the other's are activated. BUT IM JUST GUESSING THAT THIS IS WHAT THE THREE TERMIALS ARE FOR!!! If this is true would not be hard to wire switches inside to make a controller. If this is indeed the way it works and you need help PM me and I'll make you a wiring diagram to help you.
