I have seen 1 in Sydney, plus one in a yard and my wife thinks she saw a yellow one but thats it up here. I know there are a few on the gold coast as a few of the V8 supercar drivers have them. When i was talking to the conversion mob mine is from, he reckons they've sold a hundred Camaros - bullsh!t! If there are more than 2 dozen on the east coast I'd be surprised.

It would be awesome to get them all together! Our own C5 Fest! Wonder how we could make contact? I was going to join the Camaro club in Sydney but I just haven't had the time.

Understand your hesitation on drilling - I was going to do via vinyl overlay and see what I thought. Torn between keeping things original and modding.

Let me know what you think on the plasmas, I hadn't given much thought to the lights but after looking at AAC I'm thinkin'! My DRLs were disconnected as part of the conversion process and I'm keen to set back up with the halos on all the time - love the halos! There is a conversion kit to have white and switchable to red halos - might make it on the list.

Ordered a skip shift eliminator yesterday and these....

Love the old badges and was going to put under the "Camaro" on the fenders. What do you think? Probably order some black drilled aluminium pedals this weekend too.

100's of Camaro's in OZ?? Must be in sales!
Given the spread of Camaro's around the country, I am not sure logistically what would work. Most owners aim to keep the km's low so driving to say Sydney as a central location between Bris and Melb may not be a viable option. Surprised we haven't seen some other owners jump in on our threads. This would help to ID Camaro number sin Oz.
The badges would look good on your car, mine is presty busy already with the autobot badging and indicator.
Did your HID's get removed for compliance? Mine were and I was lucky to recover them and have them re-installed with the heritage grill.
The plasma's look great but were a drama to install. There is a thread about these install issues. The LED version goes in easily, the plasmas do not. As a result of these dramas the plastic bayonet on the back of the DRL fatigued. Had to fix up with glue and silicone. Hopefully this will last the distance. There are some mods you need to do so the plasma harness engages, also some tricks with locating it in the DRL bayonet fitting. They do look great, intense bluish white.

Woo hoo, arrived at my accommodation to find my CAI and black billet pedals waiting. Now how do I pack the CAI into the bag..... I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Going to drop into a Chevy dealer and see if they have any goodies, maybe even see if there are some auto/performance parts shops where a might be able to pick up something. But first, time to lay beside the pool.

Have fun with the goodies? By the pool in Hawaii sound superb.

Have been driving the car with our good weather. Tough when I have to get back into the Landcruiser.
Which CAI?

Cold Air Industries. Was a toss up between that and the Rotofab but I went with it because I could get free shipping on this and a couple of other bits to Hawaii.

Been on Camaro patrol since being here. Couple of yellows, orange metallic and a synergy green - which suprising looked pretty good. Local dealer has a 45th anniversary edition which was nice.

Was driving down one the main drags the other night and big sections were closed off with a couple of hot cars around - r/t charger, a challenger and we think we saw a silver 'maro - we like to think they might have been filming a five-0 episode - by the time we get home it will be fact ha!

Hope to get to an auto parts warehouse and take a look. Missing driving mine, rental's a Cruze - nice little car but its a 4 cyl. :(

Installed CAI, pedals and mats today. Lovin' it all. CAI makes a real difference - took it for a blast and you couldn't wipe the smile off my face the whole time. Pedals look great and feel good, mats top it off. I'll post some pics when I can.

It's good to hear that you guys are getting a chance to enjoy these cars... It looks like Mace is going to be making some interesting stuff for the LLT guys soon, so we'll be seeing some imported aftermarket stuff coming our way too.

Yes enjoying driving the car, a real head turner in Oz.

TD - Keen to see a a pic of the mats and pedals. Of course the orginal drivers mat is now on the passenger side and vica versa.

Displaying in an american muscle car show next weekend weather permitting. Should be interesting! I took it to the tail end of the GM all american car show last weekend. Most cars had left however the car was still mobbed. The local SS Commodore car club moved all their cars around so they could be photographed with the Camaro!

TD - which Sydney suburb are you based in?

Really happy with the result - shows my original carpet is a bit dirty! Managed to slip the mat under the driver footrest - passenger side still had the footrest so nice fit all round.

CAI rocks - I've been bad and need to slow down!

That's cool with the show - want to do the same when I find time. Picked up a couple of Camaro number plates for the occasion as well. I'll PM my suburb, you visiting?

Looks great TD. Had a dyno since the cai? Might have mentioned we got another 70 HP with the cai, exhaust and tune.
What were the mats worth?
The muscle car show on Sun was a blast. Camaro was a huge hit. Non stop questions, photo's and admirers. There were 250 cars and I reckon mine was one of the most popular.
Will have to put up some pics.
Met another Camaro owner about to take delivery. We had plenty to talk about and will catch up when he takes delivery to compare notes. His is same in rally yellow but auto. He owned a speccy purple 67.
Got some great pics with a yellow 67.
Did you put up your pics on another site like photo bucket or this one.
Yes I get to Sydney pretty regularly. Office based at Baulkham Hills.
Cheers,
R

Still saving for the tune. Mats were $150 for 4 with double embroidery on the front. Shipping was going to hurt hence why i sent them to Hawaii. I got them through UniqueAutoDepot.com but they're pretty much the same price at all the sites who sell them.

Yeah look forward to seeing the pics - mine are just here at the moment so I'll add a few more to my album.

I'm in Alexandria - I guess you stay out west when you come up? When you up next?

Bummer! I think I'm going to be in Brisbane that week or part there of. I know probably Tuesday and if I'm around we can grab a beer or something.

Finally got round to getting my 67 badges on - i'm happy with the result.

Windy here today - impossible to keep the dust off - the drawback of a black car!!!

I encounter this website & state they sells RHD component kits - SO that means I can order these kits (dashboard etc) & install them?

You would have to contact them. The conversion is a complex process much more involved than sourcing and installing parts.
