I'll do it if you pay my travel costs :oD
I fitted 4 sensors, outer 2 at the corners, inner 2 evenly spaced. if
you have a step or towing gear space the sensors around them so that
the sensors don't 'see' them.
run the wires up through the floor in one corner and connect to the
control box inside the pillar trim, here you can also tap an earth and
reversing light feed.
I fitted the display to the rear view mirror (my displays fit there
nicely and block very little mirror, handy for looking in the mirror
at the same time). and the wire is run behind the headlining to the
rear of the vehicle and down the rear pillar trim to the control box.
Some kits have only a buzzer which is ok in the back with the control
some kits have a quite large display which could fit next-to the rear
view mirror or on the dash itself with the wires going up behind the
front pillar trim.
fixing the display in the back of the car will make it too awkward to
see i expect, depending ehat info it shows. mine shows distance in
numbers and indicates which sensor it refers to (the closest one to an
obstruction). it also beeps and flashes as i get x distance to the
object, you can work on beeps alone but for close manouvering i like
the longest part of the process is removing and replacing all the trim
properly, and setting the holes in the bumper proper and neat.
Only tools i used was a drill to make the holes in the bumper and a
hole-saw-bit. A gas soldering iron for tapping into the feed to the
reversing lamp (you could use simpler methods). and screwdrivers.
