Hi Peter,peter c said:Hi Andy some years ago I fitted a reversing camera following a post by Dozers Dad. It was a pig of a job!
I drilled the 20 mm hole using the above measurements, I used a blind 20mm electrical grommet to seal the hole. I took the ground -ve from the heated rear screen which access through the plastic cover on the drivers side. As the cable was black I was able to tuck it into the trim.
One word of warning be careful if you use a pressure washer as the camera whilst being waterproof is not pressure washer proof!
I know this from bitter experience having had the car valeted.

Firstly I did this in 2012 so my memory is a bit hazy!
Secondly as I did not want to replace the head unit I fixed a 7" monitor to the rear wiper cover.
I seem to remember using a flexible wire that isused to hold up net curtains, drilling a few holes and eventually cutting a couple of small holes using a multi tool. Be careful as the plastic "honeycomb" gives strength and rigidity to the upper lid!
I fitted the camera to the passenger side number plate fitting. Rather than cut the number plate light wire I made a plug to fit in the bulb holder. That way if ever I have to take out the camera I still can fit the number plate light.
I soldered all of the wiring connections, insulating them with either heat shrink or professional grade self amalgam tape,rather than using quick fit blocks.
As I said before it is a pig of a job and must have taken me all day.
