Reverse Camera In Rear Bumper


I was wondering if anyone has experiance of installing a reverse parking camera within the bumber (similar to parking sensors). I would use a camera such as:-

ES288 HD Car Rear View Parking Camera IR LED Sensors on eBay (end time 15-Oct-10 03:09:29 BST)

or a combined camera / sensor package:-

Reversing Camera and Parking Sensors with Buzzer Alarm on eBay (end time 18-Oct-10 12:24:50 BST)

My main concern is the amount of room behind the bumper. The camera will require about 4cm.

I would say that to use the camera accurately for parking there needs to be a reference, either part of the rear of the car (the bumper) or overlaid guide lines.

See the pictures in this link

I think mounting it in the bumper might have a big affect on it's usability.
