That ain't not bad. Does it whistle in the wind like mine does?

Also, is that a passenger seat delete? Does the GF like riding in the back seat by herself? I kid, I know it frees up a lot of cargo space and saves a little weight.

I don't know if it whistles yet, have not driven with it on yet

I'm sure a little silicone would make it airtight. I haven't bothered yet since my coroplast and duct tape construction will suffice until I get around to making a fiberglass camera enclosure.

I put video mirrors on my car for ~$156 ($22 each for the cameras and $56 each for the screens). Not cheap, but not too bad, either.

Neil, what brand / part number did you wind up with? The ~$75 Pyle 3.5" camera + monitor that I bought is just not bright enough for use in the late afternoon.

My monitors are challenged in bright sunshine as well. When they get hot, they dim, so the combo is tough sometimes. Here's the post with the links to what I bought:

Its just 8-ball duct tape, the lines are from the coroplast texture

BTW, No it does not whistle, RobertSmalls
