Fibre optics box on rear parcel shelf
« on: August 10, 2018, 11:03:38 AM »
Dear Sirs, I have the fibre optics option on my 1968 Camaro RS/SS however the box which sits on the rear parcel shelf is missing two of its three bulbs. The one remaining bulb is red however I would be grateful if you can confirm whether the other two bulbs should also be red? Many thanks

Refering the lens as a bulb when looking parts might confuse people. Years ago I tried to find "bulbs" for my 68 vette. It was the cable loose in the console.

Good luck finding one....took me five years before I gave up and bought an original from Jim at Heartbeat City.  Still feeling the pain.....but I finally got one.

Unbelievably, it almost got stolen at a cruise I was at last year.  Long story...............Now I keep my windows 3/4 up and doors locked.

Its amazing what some a-holes will do..
