Thanks Ofer!!

Thank you everyone for putting this great post together and thanks to Ofer for the kit!

Install was a breeze, took about 1.5 hours. For me the hardest part was getting the damn A-Pilla off.

I did do a couple of things differently.

1- I did not tuck the connector near the mirror in the headliner, just seemed really tight. Because the mirror is bigger, you really cannot see it anyway.
2- Did not take the rear seat out. You can easily tuck the wire without taking the seat out.
3- I have a 2011 so there was actually a punch out tab for the camera so no need to drill. Because of this I decided to install the camera with 3m tape instead of 4 screws.

Here are a couple of pics:

I would encourage folks to cut a rectangular opening as I did, and mount the camera from inside the bumper (with the camera flanges inside) That extra 1/4" recessed makes the camera much less noticeable.

Do you have a picture of it mounted from inside the bumper? Did you use tape to hold it in place?

Has anyone ordered the 2012 Camaro version yet? I see the part numbers are available...I wonder what the cost difference is?

Jimmyh...

I thanked you for this wonderful post earlier in the thread (like #3 lol), but a huge thanks to you again!! I just finished my rear view camera and although I used a Sony camera (not Ofer's), pretty much everything you said helped me.

Seriously, thank you sooo much! Without this forum and this post, I never would've dreamed of doing something like this.

So, I've looked all over through these threads and can not find any link or anything as to where I can purchase this kit that everyone is talking about. I'm interested in adding the backup camera to my car but clearly would need to buy a kit 1st. Can anyone help me with this?

Contact username 2SSRS he posted right above my last post. His name is Ofer, hence the name of the thread. If you go to his profile and look and his statistic and find all threads started by him you will find his vendor sale thread for the back up camera.

Thanks for the help SummoneR.
NP Ofer, I would have posted a link but Tapatalk app won't let me.

I can't wait to get this mod. It is on my list. This with some AAC back up lights and I can back up a lot easier!

Pics Posted - Picture in the mirror looks better than what is shown, nice and clear.

That's my setup right now! I live in a very dark neighborhood (someone just backed into my brother's car) and I have to say that the backup lights and the rearview camera make a world of difference!

You are going to love it!

Yeah I live in the foothills of the Sierra mountains, it gets dark and foggy. Very hard to back up, especially with a tinted rear window. I was leaving a friends party a few weekends ago and I could barely back out of his driveway... frustrating.
