Does anyone have pictures of the backup camera/license plate lighting assembly, not installed in the vehicle?

I'm trying to figure out if there's space for a dash cam with a remote lens.

Let us know if you figure out the install of the dashcam

Update:

After digging through many pictures, it looks like Ingineer's exploded video shows some great details, enough to show it won't be easy if using that location Some stills from the video (all credit goes to @Ingineer) :



The other issue I hadn't considered is the vibration caused by slamming the trunk shut. Since the lens has to be within 6 inches of the dash cam, it will be difficult to work around that problem.

I do have an interior camera pointing at the screen, so whenever I have the backup camera turned on, it will be recorded. Good enough to see what's on at the bumper level, but reading license plates is still an issue.
