Bathroom Light/Fan Replace

I had a Light/Heater/Fan combination connected to a 5 Position dial switch (Off, Light, Fan, Light/Fan and Light/Heater/Fan). I am replacing the unit with just a Light/Fan unit. In my switch box i have three 2-wire conductors with one of those as the main coming from my fuse box (live). The other two pair got to the wiring box in the ceiling. My Light/Fan have the typical Black/White/red/Green. I am planning on using two separate switches to control the fan and the light independently. The wiring diagram only shows wiring for a 3-wire conductor (Black/red/white). Here's the Question.....How can I use my existing wiring to connect the switches to the Light/Fan?

At the switch:
All white wires nutted together.
Two pigtails connected to black of power in. One pigtail to each switch.
One power out black to each switch.

At Ceiling:
All whites wire nutted.
One black power in to black.
One black power in to red

Grounds: All grounds tied together and pigtailed to the switch and fan. If metal switch box additional pigtail to box.
