Default best place to drill for reversing camera?

I bought a flush-mount camera, Pyle PLCM22IR, from Amazon. Maybe I should have bought one that attaches to the number plate screws, but I have a drill-type instead. There is a spot about 50mm to the right of the number plate that looks good to me.

Has anyone any thoughts on that or other spots to drill install a reversing camera?

thanks

Peter

Right in the center of the bumper. Just position it so you miss the metal bracing in there. Search reverse camera's, someone posted a pic of theirs done this way on an NP. Couldn't see why the NS bumper would be any different.

Thumbs up A tip for drilling plastic...

Place some masking tape down & pencil in where you're going to drill. Also use a brad-tip drill; they're the ones with a centre-spike & raised spikes on the outer edge of the drill tip. Although they're designed for wood, brad-tip drills are excellent for drilling plastic!

interesting, several other people said their NS had a reversing camera, just above the number plate. My GLX doesn't, god knows I looked. Do the more expensive models get that?

I wouldn't drill at all, you can get the specific cameras off ebay for around $70, (correction $30!!) that fit in the light over the number plate. You get a camera and replacement light in the kit and they are pretty easy to install without any drilling or cutting. I have mine hooked to an after market GPS/DVD player.

If you didn't know it was there you wouldn't see it.

Default hole for camera ?

Hi Peter (Cooperplace), my camera is mounted in the bumper, directly in line and above the towbar. We have a camper trailer and the camera is used to line up the vehicle and camper without the need to have a screaming match with the navigator !!!
From this position it is also handy to reverse up to the rear of the car port etc. Does not have a full view into every possible corner, but works very well in conjunction with side mirrors for positioning.
Camera actually came with a drill so no problem re size etc. Having cracked the plastic bumper a few times off road, drilling a hole in it has not been an issue.
Cheers
Peter
