New Spark Owner!

Sun Nov 13, 2016 1:59 pm

Hey guys!

New spark owner here.

Did some quick changes to the spark :) Wanted to show them off!

- Tinted windows (50% front, 90% back and rear).
- Plasti dipped grill, chevy logos and rims.
- Added Reverse Cam (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005Q ... UTF8&psc=1) using the post from Padavos (http://www.mychevysparkev.com/forum/vie ... &start=120).

Would love to see what you guys think!

I think your car looks awesome!
I really wanted a white Spark EV. But beggars can't be choosy ...

Any details on the reverse cam?
Is it really as simple as following his post?
How about a pic of your display working as a backup can by just going into park? !!
Does the IR portion of the camera help at night?
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC.
+67 K miles. Mostly free electrons! Only one LONG visit to the shop....

Here's a couple of pics of the setup I took this morning:

Some notes:
1. You have to wait for the console to 'boot up' before shifting into reverse/
2. The radio is silent when in reverse.

Aside from that it's been pretty good! I haven't tried it too much at night yet.

Looking good. My next project is blacking out my grill covers. Then I'm thinking matte black graphics (perhaps wide stripes) to hide the rock chips on the hood that Chevy's crap paint job didn't prevent. I've never had paint on a car chip so easily.

Looks great. BTW which way did you route the wires for the rear view camera?
