Hey thanks gro51, it sure does help  Smiley
I kinda like the black and the shape of it, the whole interior is very black and chrome. What are the OER's like from classic, either standard or deluxe - if anyone has tried them?

ok got it. I'd missed that extra hole in my rear panel to the left of the number plate, and all my light sockets are correct. The reason I thought I had one wrong socket [earlier post] is when I first got the car, someone had poked that fiber into one of the turn signal lights, but that never added up for me of course - [monitoring one turn lamp??]

The only thing not quite right is my number plate light housing doesn't have a hole in it for the fiber. May have been changed?
Did the housing come with the hole for a fiber, or did the factory drill an extra hole at assembly?
If you 'read between the lines', the manual suggests that the housing hole should already be there, as for the rear sheet metal hole it says " 9/16" Dia. hole - drill at asm."
No mention is made that a hole of a particular size needs to be drilled in the housing.

The original pipe was copper?? or have you used that just for illustration purposes?

Hi all, is this the correct seat belt buckle for 68 ss with custom interior?
336  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro big block oil line for gauges on: May 08, 2006, 07:38:58 AM
here's some pics of mine, seems to be some logo on the brass line fitting at the motor end.
Pulled the guages out so I could get a pic of that end for you.

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

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?
342  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
343  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Light monitoring system rpo U46 on: May 04, 2006, 08:58:50 PM
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
344  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?
