Fitting reversing sensors in bumper

Anyone fitted reversing sensors in a standard Ducato rear bumper? There seems to be a metal crossmember behind it, so I'm wary of drilling the plastic only to finf there's not enough depth for the sensors - thanks

I'd not bother, a reversing camera is easier to fit and gives more accurate info.

If I was fitting parking sensors they'd be in the front bumper (mind you, I already have a reversing camera which is exceptionally useful).

Sometimes when easing out of a tight parking area I find it difficult to properly assess where my front corner is (I'm over-cautious, TG!)
