You'll have everything you need to duplicate what I did. PM me if you are interested.
In addition you will need brake fluid of your choice, a GTO reservoir which you already have, a right angle drill to drill the 2 mounting holes and a 1/4" drill bit. You will reuse the 2 original clamps from the original hose.
If this works for you PM me and I'll send you my PayPal address.

Your setup is nice enough that I just might have to pull mine off the shock tower and do this. I need to come up with the materials first.

So.....who is going to come up with a kit that has the reservoir, EPDM hose and clamp?

Question for Ed....because you removed the factory hose off the firewall did you have to bleed the clutch or doing anything special there?
caverman, I did not have to bleed the clutch although I intend to in the near future to get all the DOT 3 fluid out of the clutch hydraulic system.

I was not aware this may cause a problem, just trying to help out Camaro5 members. I guess I won't post any additional information on this thread.

It's not the info you posted....it's the part about money for a product.

Showing what you did is good and gives us all great ideas. Please keep that info coming.

Everyone just needs to PM you with specifics on where to get parts and stuff.

Was not my intention to hijack 2SSRS's thread. All I wanted to do was show how I approached the remote clutch reservoir installation which is what I thought this thread was about. If I stepped on anyone's toes, I apologize and will start a new thread on this subject if need be. I think most if not all of us agree Chevrolet should have installed a separate clutch reservoir in these cars.

No, not the intention of my post and i apologize. He was criticizing someone who was selling parts related to our thread when several others have used this thread to do the same. I was trying to say he seemed to have singled out CAMAR0. I should have worded it differently.

I didn't see you step on any toes. I'm glad that you posted what you did. It gives all of us options on where to mount the resivoir and I think your's turned out great.

To me this is exactly the kind of stuff this thread is for.

Got around to flushing the clutch hydraulic system today so that the entire clutch system would be nothing but the ATE Super Blue Racing DOT4 fluid I'm using. Chevrolet sure made bleeding the clutch a bit of a challenge although with a small, short 8mm wrench and an air fed vacuum brake bleeder it wasn't all that bad. I didn't notice any change in the clutch feel or actuation after the fluid change and bleeding but at least both my brakes and clutch systems are all fresh DOT4 now. Installed MTI SS brake lines and Hawk HPS pads along with a complete flush of the brake system today. The pads and SS lines are a definite improvement, well worth the $$ and effort.

Yesterday I got my calipers in and installed them along with some stainless lines as well. I used IPS's lines since I was able to get them on sale for $80 shipped. Should mostly be DOT4 now after bleeding.

I meant to flush my clutch resevoir while I was at it. Need to setup a reminder to do it tomorrow.

Yes. I've read numerous threads on this topic and also saw a video that displayed the chunks of crap in the fluid.
Seems to me separating the two wouldn't hurt, and chances of a reservoir failing is fairly slim.
GM just wanted to save some cash. I'd like to see an aftermarket solution similar to the Vettes.
