    Default Reverse camera 4 pin connector

    Received reverse camera for vxmmi today and is powered direct from the head unit with a 4 pin connector rather than wiring it to the reverse lights as I was led to believe....great stuff! Downside is I didn't think I'd have to remove the bumper! Lol! Doing this tomorrow when I have the correct tools.

    Unable to get wires through the body of the car. The twin top is apparently different to the hatch, and more difficult!

    Try pulling the plastic up on the inside of the boot and take you number plate bulb holders out and look through you'll see some rubber vent like thing with flaps get a thin bamboo stick tape the camera wires to it and poke it through the number plate light hole through the rubber and you'll be able to grab the stick from inside the boot and pull it through. Then just run it down side of car to stereo

    Will look again tomorrow. Think I know what you mean - although the twintop doesn't seem to have vents. Saw something similar on YouTube. Have you done this to a twintop?
