73 Mach 1 rear window
« on: May 23, 2011, 07:51:47 PM »
Ever since I got my 73 Mach 1 I have always noticed that the rear window doesn't offer too much viewing area.  Just now I calculated it to be around 4.7 inches :-\ of viewing height.  This is not what I would call a lot by many standards.  I had a, what I think, cool idea.  I want to get a flush mount rear view camera and recess/french it to mimic the trunk lock but right above it.

The red dot is where I would like to put the reverse cam



Thanks for looking and any comments or question are appreciated.

Don't see why you can't/shouldn't do it.  It most likely will take some experimenting to get it to the point where it works right and hopefully you can find a location that does not interfere with the aesthetics of the car.  Hopefully you can do it without cutting anything up but ...

GO FOR IT! (and please let us know how it works out)

yeah hopefully where I'm thinking of putting the cam it won't interfer with the stripes on trunk lid.  The way I want to mount it won't be too invasive just a little hole in the trunk lid.

Thanks for the response.
