    Heres mine!

    Has a total of 5 cameras. Front, left, right, rear and cabin. The front and cabin I do not monitor because I am seeing it with my own eyes. The rear cameras though I see through a visor screen with built in splitter.

    Seems like I saw that on an episode of "Pimp My Ride". Are those legal? If so, I'll be looking into them as well...

    lol, i was just reading about something similar to this in 4wheel & offroad--- they are doing a story on state legal truck modifications-- in virginia, they even address "smoke projectors" and "flame throwers"(per the article,all of this is in code 46 of the code of virginia)

    so check your local laws

    OH GOD, please dont say that. I think they make cars look so tacky. The flame throwers was a joke, lol. Technically the cameras are illegal. FL laws says you have to have physical mirrors. The way I am getting around it, is to add small tiny little mirrors. If I get the FLIR cameras though, I plan to delete mirrors all together and if I have to go to court I will prove that my system actually exceeds safety requirements.

    The camera came with a special metal drill bit to make a perfect hole.

    OK, but how did you screw on the nut on the camera from the inside? Did you make another hole from the inside of the tailgate, or is the camera free accessible? I was thinking about something like that mounted on the top of the tailgate.

    EEEEKKKKK. I hate those things. It makes it look like something the mail carrier uses on their trucks. It is easier to work with though.

    Believe it or not, putting the screw ring was a b!+ch, I cut my hands all up trying to tighten it up and keep the camera at the right angle. If the camera image moves out of place, I had to start over. Here is how I did it, very ghetto. I basically used that same bit and drilled 3 holes side by side. At the time, my dremel did not work and I was in a rush to get it in. Now that my dremel is working, I may go back and fix it to get rid of the sharp edges.

    Here is the picture of the holes I made.



    Well thats if they fix my car correctly. See the accident pictures here. 2003 Durango SLT / Project HiJackZX1 (Finally Focused Remix)

    Sorry my pics took so long to post, but I had to borrow a friend's digital camera and was finally able to get the pics taken. Without further ado, I present my rear view camera:



    I apologize that this was taken in the dark, but honestly, I don't think lack of light affected the quality much at all. In fact, it gave me the chance to show off my enhanced auxiliary brake light (LED's that replaced the incandescents). If you compare these to incandescents, you can really notice a difference. And I know it's a close up so you can't really tell its precise mounting location, so I'll give you some perspective:



    This is the back of my van in the day time, before I had the auxiliary brake light "modified" with the rear view camera installation. This gives you perspective of where the camera is situated.

    Finally for your viewing pleasure (pun intended), here is a "professional" camera job, or rather, a van with a rear view camera installed from the factory for comparison purposes:



    Mine didn't come from the factory like that one did, but I did get it professionally installed for the most part. The auxiliary brake light is just two bulb circuits with space in the center, so I drilled a hole for it as you can see in the above pics. I had the car audio shop finish the job with epoxy to weather proof the whole installation, and to match the camera's finish. I started the routing of the wires to the front (LCD screen), but then decided to let the shop finish that too. Overall I'm pleased with the results.

    Once I get the vanputer itself installed, I'll show pics of that (with images of the rear view screen on display), relevant to this thread if anyone wishes.
