Boost Gauge & Reverse Camera Wiring

I have a 2003 Tacoma / Double Cab / 3.4L..

I already have my boost gauge set up on the supercharger but I need help with the wiring for the gauge illumination. I would want it to dim with the gauges on the truck. I figured I would set it up at the dimmer. There's a green wire w/ a red stripe, a white wire w/ a black stripe and a white wire w/ a green stripe. Was wondering if it could be set up here and which wires to tap into.

I also have a reverse camera already mounted and set up to my DVD deck. It works perfectly fine, but I have to manually press a button for it to show on screen. There's a reverse camera wire mounted on the deck that will show whats on screen automatically behind me when in reverse. The only power source I can think of is all the way in the rear tail light assembly on the reverse light bulb circuit. I'm a fool for not wiring that reverse camera wire when I routed the cable for the camera!

Any other suggestions / help is much appreciated!

it would be easier if you have a fog light switch or locker switch, just to tap into the wires that illuminate those since there should only be 4-5 wires.

As far as I know, the glove box and the cigarette tray lights up when the headlights are on.. Possible even the A/C controls too?

on the 2nd gen you can tap into any switch and get the power from there which will dim them too.
