    Backup Camera in 1st Gen Camaro Rear Spoiler?

    Has anyone seen a backup camera worked into the rear spoiler of a first gen Camaro?

    I have an Anvil CF rear spoiler and I think I can make it work.

    Have you done it or seen it done? I could also use a recommendation for the camera with a standard RCA type connection.

    I have one installed in my 2nd gen with an anvil rear spoiler. Don't see why it wouldn't work on a 1st gen. I have a 1st gen with one in it too but I put it in the taillight panel below the key. The 2nd gen I used a rearview mirror with a monitor and the 1st gen I used a double din screen radio. I can send pics to your email if you want?

    Put mine right under the rear bumper. Barely noticeable. Works great. Screen is on the rear view mirror. LED backup lights were needed to see at night.

    I ordered a Pyle "bullet" camera a few days ago that will work with most double dins, If it fits I'll let you all know. searching 'bullet camera' on eBay had a number of options and surprisingly cheap.
