Even if I have to go aftermarket or have one made. I would install around hub with a smoke cover to protect it and prevent theft.
If I am reading you correctly, you are suggesting that you would cover a back up camera behind a transparent smoke cover. Just be aware that most of these cameras employ infrared lights controlled by a electric eye to allow vision after dark, and they will reflect off of glass or plastic back into the lens, rendering them useless after dark. In order to work properly at night, the camera cannot be mounted behind glass or plastic.
