Backup Camera in 08 Se Sedan

Hey y'all just got a new pioneer double din in the 08 and bought the back up camera as well. Wanted to know if anybody has any advice as to how to mount the camera (it can mount on the liscence plate) with both the power cable and video cable going clean through the bumper. I understand drilling may be necessary but I have no idea where to connect the red cable (power source)? Thanks for the help!
