Camera in action.

I almost forgot the camera was $8 or $12 on ebay. You can't go wrong with that...!

If it fits I think I'm gonna mount my camera in the rear wing where the sprayer nozzle is since I removed my wiper

I was gonna do that, but I think that's a lot of work because the space so limited and you have to make the hole 3/4" ish big...

I'm gonna get another one for the front when I do the front end swap...

I really WOULD like to do this!
I'm just thinking that it would be okay in the summer months, but in the winter time,
since Maggies get SO dirty in the back, and all vehicles get so dirty in the front,
it would be pretty useless unless you cleaned it every couple of days.

I thought about that too, but I think if you put it under the lip on the rear bumper, like above the tag, it might shield it from the dirt that gathers back there..

Great write up.

I documented a video on how I installed my stereo from start to finish.

On Youtube it's called:
Installing a Stereo, USB Ports, and a Backup Camera in a 2005 Dodge Magnum.

The backup camera starts at 53:01
