Question

?? One of my Camaros came with the Fiber Optics option. Nothing left but one benzel on the passenger finder. I found one from a dual headlight Chevelle. Question is can this be made to work on a Camaro by blocking off one set of headlights??

Jeff, you can use it. Open up the rubber end and remove the fiber optic lead that goes to the high beam indicator(usually blue in color). Take a Q-tip with some acitone and remove the blue coloring from the bezel.

Jeff,

Do a search in the "General Tech" on fiber or fiber optic, you'll find about a dozen threads to read through...

Barry,you can repair the lines.I've done it in the past.You need to strip the insulation, just like a wire,and push the fibers together.After the fibers are meshed use a electrical tape to hold them together.All you need to do is get the light to shine from one fiber to the next,nothing magical.It may not look 100% correct,but if the line is tucked out of place it will not be noticed.Check full size Caddys and Buicks (circa 1975)for the line if you don't feel like fixing the problem.
