My wife gave me a wireless backup camera and monitor for Christmas. The camera is fixed in place on a license
plate frame, so I'll just have to replace the current frame and wire up the power. However, the license
plate frame itself is angled in at the top and this would seem to be aiming the camera way above the hitch. We have a 2003 VW Eurovan and the license
plate is on the lift-up back door.
Any suggestions for making this get the right view? If I put spacers in the top license plate holes to bring the plate out to vertical or beyond, I won't be able to open the back hatchdoor since the handle is right above the license plate. My fingers wouldn't fit in the space to operate the handle.
The camera is not adjustable on the frame, either. It is fixed at 90 degrees from the plate frame. I was thinking of cutting the bottom half of the camera/frame and just mounting that over the lower half of the current license plate frame, but that's going to look plenty odd, especially with the increased vertical orientation.
