I have a 68 396 matching numbers, the angled adapter is similar to mine, slightly different shape and the oil line is black plastic which loops up through a grommeted hole in the firewall just behind the coil.
If I remember rightly, both ends of the oil line have the same brass ferrule and nut.
Will clean mine up and post a pic [bit oily atm  Smiley  ]

Ah sorry JohnZ, I'm chasing around too many forums atm, loosing the plot!   Cheesy
Ok I had a look at mine and can't see were or how the fiber gets from inside the trunk to the light, or even were it connects into the plate light housing??
Is the rubber grommet for the wire meant to be a two hole affair, one for the wire and the other for the fibre?
Maybe mines been replaced with a standard plate light assembly?

Which lights were monitored by the rear pod, seems the two outer red lens fibers are for the tail/stop lights, not sure about the center one?

The depth and style of the printing is the give away.

Yup, have seen that issue on other bits  Smiley
Thanks for the replies
320  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 68 side markers on: May 05, 2006, 05:03:03 PM
Hi, just wondering why the newer one has a [removable] bright strip around it and threaded posts in the rear holes as against my old one in the foreground?
The new one has the same mould number? with 'Made in USA' impresses into it, perhaps to suit Nova Chevelle Corvette etc?
321  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: dimmer switch for 68 Camaro on: May 05, 2006, 08:22:48 AM
Hey thanks for the pic, I thought that shape was the correct one  Smiley

Excellent!! I knew the fibre system was used on many chevy's, corvette etc. but thought the fender housing shape/style  may have been a bit different between models.

What about the tailight harness, was that the same or even similar in other chevy's such that I could at least get the correct lamp base's off it?
Thanks for your help  Smiley
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Light monitoring system rpo U46 on: May 04, 2006, 02:03:15 PM
Thanks for that John. I thought that must be the case with the front ones.
Unfortunately some time before I bought the car it suffered a damaged LH guard and that housing was missing. Someone had replaced the damaged guard with an RS guard [pop riveted tabs into it to mount standard headlamp housing  :/ ] and the light monitor housing was either lost or not transfered to the replacement guard  Sad

I think I'm up against it finding another one of those! Might be quicker for me to hand craft another one somehow.
Also, one of the rear tailight lamp holders has a standard plastic back shell which doesn't have the socket for the optic fibre to plug in.

Hi, did the light monitoring system option include a chrome housing on both fenders or only the drivers fender?
Which lights were monitored via the fender mounted housing?

Is there a link to the trim tag registry?

oh sorry, i meant the quote button just above the reply box, second in from right
327  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: dimmer switch for 68 Camaro on: May 03, 2006, 12:09:38 PM
Is the 'round line' shape as per the pic the correct original for 68, or is it meant to be the rectangular shape?

Hey great site guys n gals.
I'm new here and will be spending as much time as I can asking questions and helping others as much as I can.

One site issue, the behaviour of the 'quote' button is somewhat annoying. When highlighting a bit of text in my reply box that I want to appear as a quote, when I click the quote button it puts both opening and closing quotes at the end of the highlighted text.
Any way to change that so the opening quote appears at the start of the highlighted text?
Not a huge issue, just what I'm used to.   Smiley
329  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 68 Camaro ignition and trunk keys on: May 02, 2006, 12:29:20 PM
His work is pricey, but perfect

So is it nos, or 'nos like' repro's that he does under licence? or are they nos blanks but code cut using a punch machine instead of a milling machine to cut the bittings
330  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 396 hood ornaments and side marker bezel on: May 02, 2006, 12:08:36 PM
oh sorry, yes mine are the same - blacked out in the main channel only, around the stacks not between the stacks.
What about 69's, were they blacked out in the side marker bezel groove?
The reason I ask is that the side markers never seemed to come from GM parts with the black in the groove, unless 69's were without the black and it was therefore left to the purchaser to apply the black as required?
