Scott...don't know about new ones...if Nobody responds,here is a thought....since You have some original "cable" to compare with...try a local junkyard.....I was at one the other day and watched them crush an older Cadillac that had the fiber optic system in it...don't have a clue if the jacketing is the same or even close(for original appearance), but there are still quite a few GM's in the yards with the system....gotta be worth a shot!!!

I don't know if this is helpful or not...I don't have any experience with the fiber optics used on camaros. On the other hand...check out digikey. They have a fiber optics experimenter's kit and fiber to go with it. Get the fiber part number from the kit and price the fiber separately (should be on the same page). Problem is they don't have any special ends on them if that is a requirement. Just plastic fiber that's large and passes visable light well.

Corvette suppliers may be a good place to look. Very common on Vettes. I do know there is a vendor but I lost the link when I switched ISP's
