    The glaring white of my fiamma back box causes my reversing camera to reduce its brightness to the point where nothing else is visible. I would like to paint it dark grey which would match the MH colours better and reduce the glare. Anyone any idea of what type of paint I would need for this ??

    Hi , I had similar problem (back box obscured half the vision also bright reflexion from box ,as camera mount near the roof ) so I moved the camera to below the back box and mounted it on the bike rack, had to buy extension cable which I ran down the behind the bars of bike rack.

    Look into the cost of a vinyl wrap perhaps just over to top.......a lovely carbon fibre pattern would look good................google vinyl wrapping they are doing whole cars now...........a good finish and no bother with paint...and the wrap over curved surfaces. And they do matt finishes :Smile:
