I might be spelling it wrong but they work in conjunction with the powerband adjustment and are pre-calibrated.

Ok, got time to add what i've done to the car now. I'll narrate what i did and add the pickies later.
So first up following this thread to begin with:
ford-audio-visual-f5/reverse-sensor-mod-on-ef-t83483.html?hilit=reverse%20sensors
I sorted out the electrical components i needed:
1x Horn Relay Base http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=SY4069&keywords=relay&form=KEYWORD
1x 30A Horn Relay - SPDT http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=SY4070&keywords=relay&form=KEYWORD
1x Sensor kit (Mazda kit)

First started thinking where will i get my power source from??? Thought about getting it from the ciggy then i looked in the boot what do you know i have a power distribution block with two spare points... bingo. Got the power all set now to think about if im going to use a relay i need a trigger and reverse sensor well the reverse tail light wire should do for this. I mounted the Module that came with the kit behind the bracket for the amp's factory place. Also mounted the relay base and connected up the wires accordingly to the pic.

Image

Then where should the beeper go??? leave it in the boot hmmm looked under the steering column and found the perfect place. So had to take the rear seats out to run the cable along the side and under the carpet and behind the kick panel and behind the fuse block.

Image

And whats next oh yeah... need to cut holes on the bumper time. Didnt really take pictures when i drilled the holes but you get the idea. Holes cut sensors in, some silicone at the back to hold it sturdy. Took a long time ti think where i will drill the holes, firstly identified the middle point on the bumper and worked from there. Didnt want the sensors so much to the corners of the bumper but where its a bit straight. Also had to take into consideration that i had two flush based sensors and two elevated and in a bit of an angle sensors as seen on the pictures. While drilling the holes made a bit of a boobo.

Image

Image

Run the cabling behind the bumper and cable tied it so to avoid any future dramas and cut a small hole in one of the plugs as you can see in the picture and put the cable through that point to inside the boot and plugs into the module behind the amp bracket at least its now used for something haha.

Image

Image

And also forgot to mention that the sensors was in different colours and had to sand it back and repaint to my car colour :P That raps it up.

Next Things in mind:
1. Panting the quarter rear plastic panels and also secret.
2. Getting a custom power steering high pressure line cause mine is still leaking occasionally but will see how much it will cost.
3. And a damn good car wash!

Nice work asizzy ! Kudos to you for the DIY effort *thumbs up*.

I have always been interested in bumper sensors...one thing I am curious about is how low you are able to mount them before getting feedback off the ground...did you have to consider that in your calculations ?

Initially I thought pfft who need sensors...but after driving a daily with them fitted - it does make life heaps easier...or maybe I am just getting old :P
