Default Alpine Rear View Camera & License Plate Mount

I haven't found a way to easily mount a rear view camera on the center line of my 1989 Sidekick so I am considering the following license plate mounting system (KTX-C10LP) from Alpine Electronics.

The camera that I am considering is the Alpine HCE-C104. It will mount on the top center of the license plate frame as pictured.

The frame has built-in LEDs to illuminate the license plate. I will need to remove the OEM license plate lights and route the wiring to the LEDs.

Has anyone had any experience with either the Alpine license plate frame or HCE-104 camera?

Here are two pictures of the rear of my Sidekick.


Ignore the bicycle rack. It is there just to hide the license plate.

If you think that there are better cameras or mounting systems for the price ($50 frame + $100 camera), please let me know.

Thanks!

I decided not to use the license plate-mounted Alpine camera because the license plate is very far away from the center line of the car. I thought that a camera mounted in this manner would give a off-center rear view.

Instead, I mounted a different camera to the hub cap of the spare tire. The hub cap is closer to the center line of the car. Pictures are in a related thread:
