Default Rear-view camera installed & more mods!

I finally received my rear view cam in the mail today. Got it installed in no time thanks to the good weather today. It was a pretty simple install, and I am more than impressed with the results. The video is great quality, and the 'position markers' are helpful. I haven't tested in at night to test the 'night vision' it claims to have, but I'll be sure to update on that. We'll see how long this thing lasts out in the elements on the rear of the car.








Also, I have some blue LEDs that are bass reactive that I have under my dash. I put a switch on them so they aren't always flashing, which can get annoying if driving at night for a long time. I rigged up a pretty sturdy and stealthy switch panel under my ash tray. I put two switches is there for future expansion.



Lastly, I got a few more LEDs in my door switches to help finish out my total LED swap. Things are going well on my monte



Thanks for looking

Love the camera. You should paint the bracket's so they blend in.

I got around to taking a night pic of the camera. Keep in mind that this is a lighted parking lot, so it's not pitch black. Here it is just in the parking lot:



It actually brightens up a lot if you step on the brakes:



Works pretty good! Loving it so far
