    So having replaced the original dual camera with a single high level rear view and a single low level reversing, I am now replacing the 120 degree rear view with a 90 degree for a better sense of distance.
    As this van is now on it's third high level camera I thought it time to improve the mounting/dismounting situation by manufacturing a contoured fixing plate with cable grommet.

    I'm giving the new camera extra layers of paint and will fit at the earliest opportunity.
    In future changing the camera will be a 10 minute job.

    The 90 degree lens is much better than the 120 :thumb:
    I am going to make my own sun visor fixed to the aluminium plate. the one that comes with the camera is shite and rusts like theres no tomorrow

    Great job, but I would have run the wire UNDER the camera, so any rainwater will tend to run down and drip off. I'm sure the grommet you have used is o.k. but just my thoughts....

    It will still drip off one way or the other. Either way it will be under cover when I fit the shade

    I've just knocked this up while it's raining :Sad:
    If I get any problems with light I'll try this extension but the picture is fine just now.
