    Dude great job!! Blacked out internals are definitely the way to go. The red lens ties with well with your color of truck too. A+

    I have a similar setup, but did it completely differently.
    I do have a 3 camera setup like that too, just that my front and echomaster are hooked to a relay and switched using a CH4x4 switch.
    I think I did a small-ish writeup somewhere here.

    @MESO any chance there will be a re-up of the 2nd gen? Sorry Im sure you have been asked this 100 times in this thread.... Just noticed my 3rd Brake light went out last night so no better time to pull the trigger on knocking this out.

    little bit of here and a little bit of that...
    Do any one know what the 3D printed material is made of? Also I’m planning to spray paint the item, any recommendations with that process with this material?

    PA12 which is a nylon. They are painted with SEM primer, then SEM chip gaurd. Both are adhered pretty good. If you want to paint them, just give it a good scuff and lay some primer then paint on.

    Man, I wish there was a how-to-video for us noobs who want a bed cam- or a step by step like the keyless entry handle on the passenger side threat. Someone please put something out there.

    its almost all plug and play. the only diy part was power from the switch. i needed to solder in some diodes to trigger the anytime cam. im actually not even sure i used the right diodes. just a guy that got his soldering good enough that things dont fall apart.
    if i ever swap out the cameras I'll try to take some pics. its a pretty time consuming job to run the wires, gotta drop headliner, trim panels for all 3 pillars on one side, the passenger side dash, and the headunit.

    Of course, there is more than one way to wire that camera system.
    Yup, most time consuming part is getting that headliner down. I ended up running my wires down through the kick panels instead of going overhead, making it a little easier, but not by much.

    thatll save some work. i went with switches on the overhead panel. probably not an option if the panel hasnt been modded (another project ... ). theres easier ways to add opening for switches to the dash.

    little bit of here and a little bit of that...
    Question, will this black residue ever stop coming off? Prepping to spray paint, washed it pretty good and the black ink won’t stop running off of it. Will this be a long term issue? 97779975-1CC9-42A6-8C16-6E568124E696.jpg
