Custom Tip: Slick Rear Camera Mount
Walking among the dozens of custom big rigs at the 2010 Custom Rigs Pride & Polish event inside the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas reveals a lot of slick custom ideas.
Here’s one of interest to those who like having digital cameras used for recording what’s happening around the truck.
Michael Holland’s 2007 Peterbilt 379 sports 4-inch lights on the top of the mirrors. But the lights aren’t lights at all –they are cameras housed in chrome light housings.
Holland says they busted out the lenses and used a Dremel tool to cut into the reflector so the tiny Windshield Cams could be slipped into the chrome light housings.
“They worked out really well,” says Holland. “The cameras are hidden in plain sight, and they look a lot better than just having the cameras mounted up there.”
We agree. Nice custom touch.
