Adding Back up Camera

Anyone add a backup camera to their car? any tips or comments on where to mount? I definetly think its a waste of time, but I got the camera for free, and figure it would be kinda fun and benificial for backing with my body kit into spots, and also at night having it on to see cops approaching from behind. I just dont want an ugly install. Sorry if this issue has already been raised.... i tried to look around for it.

Camera : Pioneer ND-BC1 - universal rearview camera
Head Unit: Pioneer AVIC-N1- touch screen gps,dvd,cd,mp3 player.

I say put it next to the license plate light, just like where all the other luxury cars put theirs.

AHAHA, I'm liking the yardstick idea.... Thanks guys, I'm thinking my tint is way to dark to mount it in my rear window so im figuring installing somewhere recesed into the trunk. When I get something done, I'll post some pics.

how hard would it be to remove your trunk key hole and place it there?

you always have the trunk pop up front and most ppl would get way more use out of the camera than the hardship it is to walk 7 feet to pull the latch.
