Fiat 124 Reversing Camera Fitted
« on: May 30, 2019, 04:03:06 PM »
Has anyone had the reversing camera fitted as per the Fiat 124 Lusso Plus? I PX'd my Fiat 124 for the Abarth, and great car though it was, its the only thing I miss about it! I'm interested in having it done on the Abarth if it can be integrated with the standard screen, electrics etc. so any recommendations for who can do it, idea of costs etc. much appreciated. Thanks

If you have a search for reversing camera on 124spider.org, you'll find instructions to do it yourself. I've bought the parts, but haven't had time to do the install yet (it's quite involved, you need to remove some of the dash to get at the back of the stereo).

I fitted one works fine- but you have remember itís not a factory fitment so no warning beeps and the distance markers are not accurate but it is nice to be able to see whatís behind (small child/concrete Ballard etc).
Only thing I donít like is the spindly camera wire I had to route through the right side of the boot as the existing rubber boot conduit didnít really have enough to room to pass the connection plug through, although I am confident this could be done with the connector cut off then re crimped after ( a job for the spring).

As Carpasio said, I can supply fully plug and play kits to install a reversing camera that looks 100% OEM; the only downside being the distance markers aren't dynamic.

The kits take about 2 hours to fit yourself, with absolutely no cutting or soldering or any other alterations to the vehicle required. Or, as stated, I can fit the kit for you in a little less time, obviously for an extra charge.

Full details are available on my 124 website at https://124spider.uk - where I'll also be adding other tidbits and add-on information.

Iíd like to endorse Stuartís service - he fitted one of his kits for me today, and it is excellent. The coloured grid is not dynamic but still give a helpful indication of distance, and the image is very clear.  And he manages to get the cable inside the rubber conduit to the bootlid!
Great job Stu, thanks again.

Beautiful day in lockdown - nothing exciting to do so I finally decided to have a go at installing Stuart's (Stuclark) reversing camera.  I was hoping to have him do it but with current state of affairs this could have been months away as there is no way I can get to his place.  Anyway I managed to do it without too much hassle following Stu's excellent instructions to the letter.  I would suggest if I can do this then anyone can. Unbelievable upgrade for the price www.124spider.uk
