Default Aftermarket parking sensor install and bluetooth

Installed aftermarket parking sensor to my Insight about 6 weeks ago, works great.
I got all 4 sensors painted when I sent my car for body work repair(some n00b van driver hit and run in front of my house)

First thing is remove the rear bumper:

you will able to find some marks on the back of rear bumper
DO NOT USE those around marks, they are not for parking sensors

there are lots around marks, you need looking for 4 different marks.
I forgot take photo for them, the photos below show the incorrect marks which I used.
But they are about in the right position.
Drilling hole is very easy.



Clean the drilling hole and make it nicer

Install sensors, simple push would do the job.
I install the controller box and speaker in side the car, so I drilled a hole in the mark rubber cover to let all cables go through.

Just installed the controller box on the back of the cabin, speaker is on the side of controller box


I have used some waterproof sealing staff to seal the hole, make sure let power cable run through as well, because I'm going to use reverse light to power up the parking sensors.
