Backup Camera

Does anyone have a picture of a backup camera install on a Celica? I'm getting a rear-view camera for my AVIC-N1 today and I'm wondering how I should install it..Thanks.

They sell cameras specifically designed for the replacement of the key hole. I will be doing it once it gets nice out. I have the screen and camera, just dont want to go out in the cold.

Here is where I bought it.

^^ Bet you won't say that when you run over a poor kid on a power wheel because you turned your head and didn't see anything before you backed up.

ya we had one on our suburban, mounted just left of the recievier, it helped when towing our trailers, i mean i still had to look in the Mirrors and turn my head to get the truck straight, but this way i could know how close i was to the trailer, and that the trailer was still there when we were hauling. it was also water proof so when we launched our boat, we could see under the water...

too bad they dont have audio though, i wouldnt have to yell directions to the front/driver about moves and actions he/she should do

The keyhole idea seems really cool and I think it looks clean, but how do I take apart that piece that has the CELICA letters engraved into it? I also like how roxyracer (with the red celica) mounted her's where the right License Plate light is. I don't know how to remove that either...so if someone could tell me how to remove that whole piece I'd really appreciate it. Thanks everyone.

well just pull back/off the plastic cover from the inside of the hatch, and you can see everything in there, the lock mechanism and all,

or for the light wayyou can use a heat gun to melt/loosen up the glue to the plastic light cover, and remove that that way, you will also need to push away the clips (you will see when your in there)

if your going to defend your case, atleast make it reasonable. I just think its poinltess for our cars. I can understand an 18 wheeler or something along those lines.

^^ How is that unreasonable??? Point I was making is it is not just for show or laziness. If a small child that is shorter than what you can see by turning your head is behind your car and you have a backup cam and you see him on there, you just saved his/her life and yourself vehicular manslaughter.

Is that a reasonable enough defense for ya??!!
Not that I had to explain it but I guess you just didn't get it. rolleyes
