this is a great method- although I used the running lights on pass side ---and in the end I rewired to the back up lights...
turns out I don't care whats back there ( might change back if I had a trailer or carrier) when I'm driving
I mounted mine in the center of the 3rd brake light lens- the brake light is still good for visibility- the power wiring runs with the brake light wires
I wanted the high angle for backing the spare tire carrier up against a wall at home- without hitting it
I didn't want to have extra holes through the fiber glass.
for that reason I used a wireless feed for the video- it works perfectly fine last 4 years:
Peak PKC0BU4 4.3-Inch Wireless Back-Up Camera
( I had mocked up a couple of different camera systems incl wired and this had a better image than the others I tried...one was costco)
the monitor I have on a suction mount and when not needed I just unplug and put under the seat
hmm this went to the cloud the right way around:
