Step 1 – cut opening for camera in rear bumper
The butterfly camera was chosen as I wanted to minimise drilling into the rear bumper and wanted a camera that was out of sight hence the area immediately above the number plate. The install of the camera was slightly complicated by the presence of a rectangular potted box so a larger hole has to be cut into the rear bumper, as the number plate is always fitted to the car I decided to cut the opening behind there and route the cable up behind the plate.
If the camera doesn’t have this box fitted the hole only needs to be slightly larger then the connector on the end of the cable. A dremel makes cutting the opening reasonably quickly with masking tape to mark out the cutlines and protect the surrounding paint.
Step 2 – Remove trim
