I spliced into the backup light at the light as well and then ran the cable to the head unit with the video cable from the camera. It was just easier to find the reverse light cable when you can just look at which wire plugs into the light.
So we bought our TC as basic as it can come. We found we really wanted/needed a backup camera. So we started looking around and here is what we came up with. All told we spend about $300 or just under. First we replaced the radio with this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/7-double-2-din-touch-screen-dvd-car-stereo-Ipod-camera-/310289054054?pt=Car_Audio_In_Dash_Receivers&hash=item483eab3966 We paid about $160 for ours. This is a pretty neat little deck, it play DVDs, CDs, connects to Ipods, and best of all it has full Bluetooth. The radio we got has a broken microphone so we can use the bluetooth execpt to check voicemails, but it works great for that. The seller is sending us a new unit. Then we bought this camera: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ford-Transit-Rear-View-Camera-Back-Up-Reverse-Vision-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQfitsZMakeQ3aFordQ7cModelQ3aTransitQ20ConnectQQhashZitem230c844817QQitemZ150533851159QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories Then we bought a kit similar to this one, but it was only about $30 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2010-UP-FORD-TRANSIT-RADIO-DASH-KIT-COMBO-99-5824B-/140479647388?pt=Car_Audio_Video&hash=item20b53d4e9c We put it all in and this is what it looks like:
We just bought our TC last week and are going to start looking into some vinyl, but we have no clue how much it costs. What you had done to yours is exactly what we are thinking for ours, our logo, some text and thats about it. If you don't mind me asking, about how much did this run for you to get this done??
