NSW Corvette Club Runs, Events & Notices / Canberra Nationals - Postponed to 2022
« Last post by Vettech on January 21, 2021, 06:41:15 PM »
Information to hand from Mr Terry Ruse of the Canberra Club advises that the next Convention / Nationals to be held in Canberra has been postponed due to Covid-19.

But rest assured it will go ahead 2022.

This may mean that the calendar for Nationals has been slipped by one year for all participating clubs.
However I will supply more information when it comes to hand.

If you have booked please see Corvettes of Canberra Web site and adjust your bookings.

ALSO: Please be advised that some of our members are looking to make use of accomodation bookings by organising an overnite run for Tea and Lunch in and around Canberra.

I'm sure if you would like this idea - then please talk to Mandy (sorry to dob you in).

If we get some numbers - it may be worthwhile organising.
Canberra is close and a run may also interest people as a day outing.

Yes very good item for lots of reasons.

Those roadside trailors with the flashing LED message boards, are equiped with Sim and associated module's which allowes me to dial in and interogate the sign, see its display, modify or change display, switch on or off etc etc.

Can also be set to run radar detector for speed and also gps. Very helpfull when some moron takes the sign or shoves it over an embankment, they usually steel the very large and heavy deep cycle lead acid batteries, only to find they are either too big or too heavy for vehicle applications, not to mention they are deep cycle, not starter/vehicle batteries.

They also think once they cut the main battery lead, the system is off - not quiet so.

A vehicle can only comply to the ADR's that applied at the date of manufacture.

If they were made retrospective there would be absolutely no older vehicles on the road.

The splitting of the circuits from memory requires an extra wire to be run front to back. Both my 87 & 90 have one LH & one RH lens changed to amber. You could use dual filiment globes or dual colour LEDs and a clear lens - the possibilities are endless. Definitely on a C4 and from memory the 78 C3 the wiring runs internal and goes thru the rear "tramsom" for want of a better word via a rubber gland. But could just as easily be run under the vehicle.

But be aware that individuals are trying to change rules applying to "H" plates.

The C2 1967 has 2 red lens either side with the reverse light in the middle so difficult to rewire to stop brake light blinking at same time as indicator. Correct me if I am wrong but I was not aware that say a 1967 model would be exempt from current ADR?????? Thanks Tony

Technically I guess blinkers don't need to be changed as 67 is pre adr's  but stand behind car and get some one to sit in car with foot hovering on brake with blinker  on will look pretty confusing  from rear personally I think it is required more for a safety aspect. Correct me if if I am wrong a  C2 has a white lense which can have an orange globe fitted to meet the requirement to separate the turn indicator. A twin filament globe can be used or separate sockets sharing the same clear lense for reverse & turn signals. Have done it numerous times on C3 cars is a very simple wiring mod. I dare say C2 would be the same. Nothing externally on car gets changed

Corvette Related Chat / ADR regs on brake lights and indicators
« Last post by Tony on January 08, 2021, 04:17:32 PM »
Hi All.
I own a 1967 C2 427/390 Big Block which is mostly authentic and in schmick condition.
It has been on H plates for a few years however I notice the new regs re conforming to ADR in relation to flashing brake lights and red indicators is being discussed.
I do not live in the city but I admit I have NOT seen a Corvette or Mustang of this 1966 67 era that has had changes made.
My mechanic says it is a major job (removal of exhaust etc) to re do the wiring to conform.
Could someone enlighten me as to whether club members are changing their lighting to conform and if so the cheapest way to do it.
Any comments much appreciated or is it worthwhile just leaving authentic??? What are most C2 Corvette owners doing.?????
Thank You
Tony Goninan
