I guess I could have added a pic with brake fluid! No worries, the reservoirs were full with nice clean DOT 4! Even though the pics don't look like it, must be the flash from the camera. Thanks!

I have the reservoir, and I finally ordered my install kit from Ed. I cannot believe how hard it is to find EPDM at auto parts stores! Can't wait to get me reservoir all set up :-)

Yes, the Dremel tool with a drill bit made a nice starter hole and then I pulled the air intake box to gain access from the front side with a cordless drill for the 1/4" hole.

Interesting tidbit. The automatic transmission cars have the outlet on the brake reservoir capped from the factory

I'm not sure if the reservoir is a different part number, but if it is, you could always try going that route as well...

I checked with all my parts guys here in town. No one has it. I can order about 28 feet from Napa for a small chunk of change. But, it'll take 7 to 10 business days to get here. I shoulda done that one Monday....cause now it's Fridy and I'm down 5 days.

SHIT!

You can use Neoprene if they don't have EPDM. Neoprene isn't as resistant as EPDM but it is used in a lot of brake systems.

After trying to find all the parts local and for what it would cost on the internet, decided to go a different route: going to swap out the reservoir for the one used on the automatic and mount the GTO reservoir on the shock tower.

Does anyone have the part number on the brake reservoir for the automatic? I might just swap it out as well if the cost is not to great.

Thanks for the write-up to all who have done this and posted to help others.

Greatly appreciated,
Derrick

Hello all. Everyone's clutch reservoir looks great! I actually took it one step further and just got a billet one with a cap from some guy in Australia and it perfectly matches my black and silver muted underhood theme...

Just for reference, here is a picture of the 00-02 Camaro clutch reservoir I had on my 68 Chevelle... Looks very similar to the GTO one... May be an easier to get and/or cheaper alternative to the GTO reservoir?
