Smile Re Turn signals

HI all

I have a 69 RS/SS camaro and have imprted it into Australia, local Laws do not permit the use of break lights as an indicator and i would like to replace the reverse globes with Amber globes and use them as my indicators.. i also want to use the front driving lights that also double up at the momment as indicators but i need some help locating the main junction that makes the rear and front lights flash..

Can this be done? if so i would really love some help and ideas on DIY solution

Re: Re Turn signals

Welcome George!
If you are in QLD then there are heaps of places that know this sort of thing inside-out and back-to-front and can get you through LO7 compliance, mainly around Bris/Gold Coast. Otherwise, I guess what you are suggesting could be done, but unless you're both capable and competent doing it yourself, probably best left to a qualified auto electrician. Tell 'em what you want, then just pay the bill and drive - easy!!
If you're serious about DIY though, get a copy of the '69 Factory Wiring Diagrams through the usual parts vendors or restoration parts suppliers.

Re: Re Turn signals

Outboard light sockets have three wires to them, Black, brown and a color (yellow and green) the colored wire is the turn signal wire move it over to the center bulb for turn signal then run a new wire from the brake light switch white wire to the wires that you just cut off the outboard sockets for brake lights. You need to cut the white under the dash and hook the new wire to the brake switch side.

In that case, armed with the factory wiring diagrams, you'll $hit it in mate! Good luck and let us know how it turns out George!
