1994 International 4700 Conversion Begins

Looks good scooter. I like the large screen.
Thanks, not exactly the factory look I was hoping for but in 94 they were not thinking of space for a 7 inch screen and back up camera systems. I knew it was going to fit this way pre-order. The smaller screens would have been too small to easily see from driver seat but would have fit better. Compromises.... Compromises...

It will work out pretty well I think. It sticks out from the dash about 3/4 of an inch or so which is close enough to the dash to keep it out of harms way...I think. Our cab is not that big and I've gotta try to keep extra items pretty tight or they are in the way. The picture quality is pretty good too. I will get the camera mounted up tonight. I'm glad I did not get a bigger camera! This one fits under the light bar...barely.

That looks almost like a fish-eye lens. I hope it doesn't make it difficult to judge distances when backing up.
Yeah, I figured it might be this way. I don't think it will be too bad. I figure it's way better than nothing and I can see to the side a bit. The rest I should be able to see with the mirrors. I am also hopeful I will be able to see either side of my little trailer when pulling it. As it is right now, I can't see the trailer at all unless I'm turning aside from an occasional shadow.

My wife likes to get behind the 15k lb vehicle for some reason also. This way I should be able to see her.......and tell her to get out from behind the 15k lb vehicle.

The more I look at it, the more it looks like the shape of your oval building may be contributing to the fish-eye effect also. It may not be that bad once you're on the open road.

The building certainly adds to the visual. Looking at the bumper though, it does have some curvature to it.

Have you seen the split rear cameras? It's basically two cameras mounted side by side, and one can be aimed back to see traffic and the other can be aimed downward to see your trailer hitch and obstacles while backing.

Hi Pat,

I had not seen the side by side one in your picture. That is interesting having both together like that. I might have looked at it closer if I had come across that one pre-purchase.

I thought about dual seperate camera units, one for the front passenger side looking back into the blindspot and other off the rear.

My mirrors cover the passenger side pretty well, so I decided not to hassle with getting the dual set up.

Thanks Scooter. I've been lurking and reading. I have a 4-camera setup now, with a 5-inch screen. But, it's a cheap system and just okay. Based on the discussion here, I ordered a system with a 7-inch screen from RearviewSafety.com so I can be like y'all! I'll post pics in my thread, when I get it put in. Thanks for the suggestions, all.

Nice, can't wait to see how it turns out!

Good morning guys,

I found this website last night Tadi Brothers, and they have some pretty cool stuff, pricey but cool! They are on Amazon also.

I have even less room on the dash of my F250, so I'm sort of leaning towards something like this. This is a 7" wireless monitor and you can also get a 9" version. Since my configuration is a tow vehicle and trailer, wireless would be much easier to install, and much easier to transfer if I trade vehicles later on. They claim 65' paired connection, with no interference or time delay. Plus, they have a 30 day money back guarantee if you're not happy with it.
