Complete Cruise Control delete - any issues to be aware of?

I've been reading the steering wheel swap threads and I realize that I want to remove the whole CC system - actuator, cable, module, stalk, etc. Is there anything to be careful of when doing so? The way I work is that I often create new problems when trying to simplify things. I never, ever use CC and would like the engine bay space for a small compressor or other accessory in the future. Are there any electrical terminations or circuitry to consider before just unbolting and unclipping everything? This would make swapping in a new wheel at some point a bit easier as well. I should probably test that the CC system works and save all the parts for someone else - looks like most OEM CC parts are now discontinued. I've searched for a related thread and came up empty so maybe this means there aren't really any potential pitfalls? Thanks

If I were to delete the cruise control I would make sure to weatherproof the connector end the is under the hood for the cruise control module/actuator. There are a few wires that communicate with the transmission, ecm, and instrument cluster. That may cause issues if you get water or corrosion in that connector. If you are sure that you'll never reinstall (and future buyer's won't mind) I would cut the connector off and heat shrink all the wire ends. Or you could try packing the connector full of dielectric grease and wrapping it in a plastic bag or saran wrap. Just my $0.02

If I were adding a compressor I would aim to place it where heat is not a factor, there are several other places where heat isn't so much of an issue, just my thoughts, luck however you do it.
