This thread is to show how we installed a front facing camera in my Mitsubishi Mirage / Space Star.
The 180 degree camera and screen was purchased from AliExpress.
Tip: Do not work in your car while it is hot.
Before start installing the camera we start by creating an acrylic support to attach the screens (I already had the Auto-Vox M1 backup camera installed before of this):
We started by removing the front right wheel and splash shield. You only need to remove all those pins (to remove each pin you need to pull the interior to outside and then it will comes off easily). We also needed to remove one screw from the bumper. But is very easy to remove this.
Then we have swapped the "empty" rubbers because one is more easy to puncture than the other.
After that we put the camera in the desired place (I've choose put in center, with double face tape above and below of it) and we routed the cables using zip ties. Tip: Avoid route the cable through "hot areas" when the engine is running.
Back to the interior
We installed a rocket switch button to turn on/off the front camera.
We route the cables behind the glove box.
- Avoid touch the curbs with the bumper.
- See left/right in hard intersections (example: when we are exiting from a tight garage direct to the road).
Used wiring scheme:
Alternative wiring scheme: If you prefer you can also use the red wire tail to power your camera without connect the black wire (but I am not sure if this will be good at long term):
