reverse camera

I'm thinking about fitting a reverse camera to my 06 civic but all the cameras I have seen on eBay and places like that baffle me, has anyone fitted one and can tell me where they got it and how the number plate light works after

hi. I bought mine from ebay, it was something similar to this one Waterproof IR Night Vision Car Rear View Reverse Backup Parking Camera CMOS/CCD | eBay
there are so many to choose from.

The camera is quite simple to fit. If you have the built in sat nav you can buy the video in cable from Bog on this forum which i recommend you do. he also provides instructions to fit the cable.
To fit the camera, i attached the camera beside the left side number plate light. you will just need to scotchlok the positive wire from the camera to the positive wire from the reverse light. there is no need to connect a negative as the camera will ground through the video in lead.

heres mine

Hi to another Luton member,

Yeah the ebay one's will do the job. As above need something similar to that spec.

I've been meaning to fit mine, but still ain't got round doing it. Maybe this year...

still haven't got round to doing this yet but I really don't want to put nasty screws up through my light bar if I can help it. every where I look I find cameras for the saloon and for previous shapes that fit in the number plate light hole but I cant find anything anywhere for the fn/fk

Why? It's any easy mod and the cameras can be mounted with glue or screws... No one can see the screws... This how I did mine.
