I made my own plug out of some salvage PC parts.
Pics of the hookup or a how-to? Which PC connectors did you use?

I posted the DIY over on moderncamaro

I used an old CD Rom connector, and I tried to take a couple pics tonight with my more epic install.

Of course.
http://www.moderncamaro.com/forum/do...10-camaro.html

I am going to update the thread a bit with the CD Rom cable. I was pretty tired when i took the photos, and I didn't take the pictures under best circumstances.

My first method of tape does work. The trim just doesn't want to stay on. This method with the CD ROM audio cables lets you unplug the mirror if needed.

Good writeup but I thought you were wiring to a 2012 model...

If I could see the 2012 wiring diagram for the mirror I think we could figure it out. It might be the same as how I did it though. Based on the earlier conversation of Alex and Ofer, it appears the 2012 uses pins 6 and 7 for the camera, so those pins would not be needed.

I think I am looking for what rhyder is looking for:

A 13 mirror in a 12 with the camera on an aftermarket radio.

Sorry I just read this whole topic, it's a great concept, if it was possible I would maybe consider not doing a my link retrofit.

Well I read all these posts and all the off shoot posts from it... It seems no one has an answer or hasn't done a 2012 2LTRS Vert w/ LCD and auto dim retro fit of 2013 frameless mirror w/o LCD.

So as I understand it, there is no harnesses yet made for this retro for the 2012.

I am looking to gut the 2012 LCD monster of a rear view mirror and relocate the LCD in a custom housing near the same area (next to/above/below) the new frameless 2013 mirror. ANY help out there that has already been done with clean installs and/or prefab harness would be a great help.

Go to Ofer's web site, Gen5DIY.com He has kits there to retrofit into 2010's to 2012's.
