backup camera installation

Ready to install backup camera on 2015 FC 27'. Will be installed behind rear clearance light. Need help on rivit type and source. Is this rivit installation similar to aluminum pop rivits used in boats. Need as much information as you can provide.

Same here - power was taken from the closest light. Lights on TV need to be on for camera to work but I drive with them on anyway for visibility.

Video below shows location of install by dealer (about 30 seconds in)

I see the backup camera has been touched here, so:
Silver Bullets backup camera has failed again..
Would like to install a new 'wired' system w/side looking cameras.
What system to use?
Anyone gone this route?
Was the origin wires to the camera usable?
If not, how did you run the replacement cables?

Got to keep thinking of things to do while I wait for a lift pump for the Cummins convention
