BTW, does anyone remember who offered the reproduction "Mera" wheel center cap decals? Thanks in advance, J


I do believe it was Rodney DickMan who has offered the Mera Wheel stickers in the past.
check his site, maybe......http://www.rodneydickman.com/retail.html


now the question about weight. I have always wondered about this. I have another Base 87 Fiero that "they" say weighs about 2590 Lbs. but that's w/ power NO-thing and minus Air-Con.....so if the Mera Panels weigh 100 lbs more I can see why you and "Rex" clock in at around 250 lbs heavier. I must hunt down some specs and return......away!

*edit* the heaviest Fiero is rumored at 2789 lbs....so the difference is 41 lbs.
I thought the Mera panels were a lot more, I guess. huh.

the collector in me says "Yellow" cuz that's the way it came. but when I was mulling over the purchase of #7029 I was thinking white would be the ticket!

The grey. I know they came with yellow originally, but the little bit of contrast makes the car pop.

Sooo, anyone else want to offer an opinion on the wheel colour???

whoops..... that's what I meant.
I should have used "with" instead of "and" sorry about that.

you know ...after a weekend of pondering. 41 pounds may be the difference anyway.
since the Mera Skins over the front and rear decklids we do not lose that weight and with the addition of the aluminum grills and sail panels I bet that's real close to the overage found above.

and after another hour of staring at the contrast of the 2 wheels in the pic you posted, I do have to agree with Dean, it does "Pop" a bit more with the Grey wheels.

just cant wait for Spring......we broke a snow total here in MI with 104 inches this season. so I am ready for some roadtrips

The yellow is striking, and unique--you won't see another very often. Guess it has my vote.

I like the grey for contrast, and would probably run them if I drove the car very much. I'd save the yellow wheels for if/when you show the car, if for no other reason, it is what it came with originally, yes?

The yellow is much more "attention grabbing", while the grey, to me, is somewhat understated, which leans more to my tastes, but it IS your car.

You only asked for opinions, and as we all know, they are like noses and ********, everybody's got one, and they all smell! .

I notice the bumper is not as far inside the body as the one in the pic on Rodney's site...Is it something that someone can adjust to achieve a look similar as on your car?

Thanks

P.S. -- Lovely looking bride as well!

Cheers



I FAR I,

Yes... the Bumper is adjustable... You can set it all the way out to get the US look or all the way in for the Euro look. I just picked a setting in-between. The bumpers are very easly to switch out thanks to Rodney's good design work.

Heater core went out on me today. Fun times! I was doing joint calls with my boss. Luckily he's a trooper. I don't know many bosses that would put up with a stop by Autozone to see if they had a core bypass kit. Looks like my weekend plans just made themselves. I'm not necessarily happy about it, but I'm not upset either. The most I had ever done to a car before this was change a thermostat in my Honda. Now I've done a swaybar/brackets/end links, shocks, steering stabilizer, and now I'll get to learn to do the core. It's very empowering even though in the grand scheme they are little things, to stand back and say, "I did it. I didn't have to pay someone". Now if I could just get past my fear of pulling off the brakes to see what's making that ticking noise....

Core change is pretty easy--except for the hose connections, it's an inside job. DO NOT destroy the heater hoses trying to save the core connections. If they don't come off, crush the core connectors inside the hose--channel locks work well--you are going to discard the core anyway. Good luck.

Ok, Did the core swap. Followed Fiero Owners Manual fill procedure. When I removed the radiator cap in step 2, 1/2 gallon of coolant came out. I topped reservoir to full. Cycled engine. The thermostat housing then accepted about 1/2 gallon of coolant. Cycled engine second time. At this point the thermostat housing was full. Installed new thermostat. Ram engine for 15 minutes. All HVAC functions work. Allowed temp to rise to 220. Turned on A/C. Temp then went down to 185 as it normally does when radiator fan comes on. I didn't jack the car and it was setting on level ground. I used premixed 50/50 ethylene type antifreeze. Does this sound right? Is there anything else to check before driving it to make sure the system is properly bled? Thanks.

Thanks to everybody for the feedback on my lace wheel question . Any member's positive input is welcome, and appreciated, at any time.

While I favor the Yellow wheels, I presently have have only three of them (until I paint a grey one yellow), and the grey wheels do encourage my eye focus on the body besides having a nice Euro feel to them. I am leaning towards Sage's idea of using the Grey for daily use and archiving the Yellow for special occasions like car shows. They are both attractive, just in a different way.

This week I discovered that my steel clutch pedal was a little bent! So, it seems that can happen. Go figure...

Thanks again everyone

I hear that, pedal bending is caused by "spirited driving" and theres NO cure!!

good show with the wheel decision.
in the end its all about "preservation", to me. the 1987's alone and exclusively.
saving the Yellows for shows and such keeps them off the road for the "unseen" "accidents" cards, not to be played as much.

one would guess that the Yellow color alone, sets Rex aside, plus the fact they are '87 offered only AND you have the center emblems makes #7029 quite an anomaly

Dan,

I must disagree with you on this since these wheels were stock on 1988 Meras and the Chromadoras were optional. I had a set of 1988 stock wheels with the MERA center caps that I acquired from Bob Bracy's wife's car several years ago. I gave the wheels away (sold them for $75 for a set of four new wheels but never got paid for them) but still have the center caps. They are black MERA letters on a clear background.

BTW, Yellow and British Racing Green are the two color I am considering for my 88 Mera project car. I think that BRG will win out with the Beechwood interior but you never know.

yep. you got me there.....I never looked at it like that. like forgot. just like the tail lights there was an "option", available.
now I want to find pics of 1988 Mera with stock Fiero wheels. sooo fun to play detective again
plus all the 88 Mera-i I have ever seen, always had the Cromodoras. this thread alone is proof I think. good timers good times again

*edit*
now I checked my Mera sales brochure (which is where I got my assumption from) and it states that the Cromodoras come as a Mera Specfication and/or Feature......so I am not sure about that statement I make above anymore

If I remember correctly the Cromodoras were available in 1988 so it stands to reason the 1987 made 1988 Fieros made had the option but unless a weird request was made in 1988 on a 1988 Mera that all 1988 Mera were Cromodoras all around??
that's a good question right there......but......alas, that's the 1988 Mera we're talking about and I DO the 1987, mostly

Thanks everyone for your nice comments. After I took this picture, I stopped for gas and one of the attendants asked if he could take a picture (that has never happened to me before!) "I really like these old cars!" Guess I do too...

My latest thought is to paint the center caps yellow and have some "Mera" decals on clear backs made to put over them. If not "Mera", then it would be cool to use a "Pegasus" decal instead.
Still, maybe the yellow caps would make the wheels look smaller? Just thinking out loud.

Nelson, British Racing Green would be trick! It would almost certainly make your car look even more special.
Of course, I like Yellow too

2005 Lotus British Racing Green is what I am likely to go with. It is very similar to the above photo. Here is the link to the color assortment if anyone is interested.

Nelson - Those classic color combos absolutely rock! That deep British green with the peanut butter colored beechwood would be beautiful.

With the yellow MERA, I must say I do like the way it looks with the dark rims. It sets off the yellow of the car well. Kind of similar to the yellow and black of the Pittsburg Steelers uniforms. Likey!!!

Mera X update.......I sold the TransAm today.
so, now I got room in the garage and "unseen" money for the engine. most likely a 3.4L massaged a little
its time to farm out the repair on the Mera and fix the Black Fiero myself!
thinning the herd however ......I do need a V8 something or other now hummmmm

the GTS is off the Chrysler Lebaron and I cant remember where the 2.8 V6 comes from. I just got these off Mera #7071 and have witness marks from the orignials the PO took off in lew of Ferrari bagdes.
yeeehaw....its good to be back talkin Mera!!!!!!!!





the 2.8 v6 is from mid 80's s10 trucks. the gts is from lebaron gts emblems and you cut the gts off the end. the mera letters on the rear decklid are from various mid to late 80's Pontiac or gm products. some say a "grand am se" but it takes 2 sets of those to get the letters with the correct cut. ask me how I know.
