Reverse camera finally done and dusted.

Hey guys, hope your all well.

Just thought I'd share my photo of my reverse camera that I fitted yesterday.

Would like to say thank you to everyone who helped with the advice, appreciate it.

Cheers.

Takes a bit of getting used to seeing how close it takes you to an object

Yes your spot on there, but it's dead accurate.

The picture in daytime is good, but at night it's a little grainy (still a decent picture mind)

Mines not too bad at night, have you tried getting some brighter reverse lights?

I must admit I would never have done it on my own but when I helped another member fit mine it was a lot easier than expected. Its not difficult its just knowing the best place to put the wires and where all the clips are.

Nice job, I've meaning to do mine but I'm installing the V3 box so may take bit longer to install!

Hopefully fit it this year sometime...

I have got a reversing camera and V3 box from mrbozo.

I am not 100% confident in fitting it myself, is there any kind member who lives in the wythenshawe/South Manchester area who is confident enough to help or do it for me. I will pay of course. my car is an 06 ex model.

Cheers guys

Ian

You will love the installation once completed.

You will also find you'll be reversing a lot more too lol

Well I attempted to install the cam and V3 box I got this far and bottled it, really not confident at all... Please can someone come to my house to help I also don't mind driving to someone who can help, but failing that I'll have to look around for an auto electrician or something similar

Don't give up, I'm sure there's other members who can help you through it.

The reverse cam is an easyish kind of job but the v3 box I wouldn't know but I'm sure there must be a guide on here to help you.

To this..

Hi mate, could you tell me which attenuator you bought and where did you install it to? I have a bad washed out video problem and want to do the same but no idea which write to attach the attenuator to, plus what type of attenuator to buy.

Much appreciated.
