    Default Rear parking sensor

    Well fitted the sensor this morning! It is a fiddle getting bumper off but in the end not too bad.The sensor was a breeze to fit,made sure I covered the crossmember with black gaffer tape as well as the actual sensor[two layers!] scotchlocked the reverse wire in,earthed unit,put it all back together and job done in about an hour and a half.Tested out against a wall first,no problem picking up that,then tried a wire fence,again no bother,even beeped when I set a weedstalk up a couple of feet from the fence! I know there have been posts that this type are not so good but for me,it couldn't be better,no holes to drill no colour match probs nowt!

    Its a metal strip that sticks to the back of the bumper, so no drilling to the bumper
