Default OEM Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist Installed

This is a OEM GM Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist system installed in my car. This system was never offered in a Bonneville OR a Pontiac Car for that matter, that being said there was some modification of the wiring that needed to be done to get the system working correctly

The system uses 4 sensors that are installed in the rear bumper to give the driver warning of objects when driving in reverse. The display is in the headliner, with 3 LED'*. I mounted the Module in the OEM location as the Large GM Cars, Deville, Lucerne, Park Ave Etc.

here are the pics

after lots of planning and measuring

Well done. The bumper looks totally stock. Only a hard core bonneville person would notice. You truly have a one of a kind Bonneville.

you know me Dan, if it dosent look stock, then it dosent get installed on the car.....this goes along with the other OEM installs (RainSense Wipers, Heated Washer Fluid, Heated seat and switch plate, Rear Outboard Heated and Lumbar seats, Rear center console, Turn Signal Mirrors, the projectors from the STS ,and all the GXP stuff.
