The gray one is what was scheduled to head to Daytona tomorrow. I even got the new Trueleo intake powder coated and installed (finished at 3:30 PM today). Then I noticed that the volt gauge is only registering around 12 volts and sometimes less. I do not have time to determine the issue and clean the car so the red Mera gets the nod tomorrow. Maybe next year I can get the 87 to Daytona again.

Glad I don't have to make that choice--er, uh, wish I had to make that choice. Guess I really do like the gray one. Nice cars, Nelson.

I thought I would share some progress on the ReMera for everyone's enjoyment:

Checking the fit of the G1 Dash...fits perfectly:



Mr. Mike shipped my seat covers...should be here tomorrow:


Lighting doesn't show it well in the photo, but exact same colors as the G1 dash.

Black suede for headliner & rear waterfall:



Amida is working on covering the following interior trim pieces in Turmeric (Tan):


and the center cover for the EVO steering wheel.

And I am 2nd & 3rd in line for the 1st sets of the G1 door panels...he is integrating the door topper piece.

Hopefully will have her completed in the next 30 days!

Rexgirl,

I almost always go with a MOMO MILLENIUM EVO 350mm 13.8" Steering Wheel Leather (MEVO35BK1P) with all my G1 Dashes...the upper opening in this steering wheel matches the size & shape of the G1 gauge pod.

Here is the one installed in BlueDream:


But I am doing a 2nd steering wheel for the ReMera as wheel and will decide which one I like better:


Take a look at the two wheels and the holes.



Marring the two together is a easy now that I see the wheel not installed...since I have taken apart a few stock hubs and steering wheels.

Here is stock wheel disasbled:


3 of the 6 factory holes line up with Grant after-market...just need to thread the others.

This is what one looks like completed:

The wood rim wheels look so right inside the Mera's body. Very Euro.
I really wish I had kept my Nardi Classic woodrim steering wheel now :sigh: Jae

I'm finally making some progress on my Mera, hope to be able to drive is some this summer before I start on the interior and paint.

I just installed the Arraut front coilover setup with 1 1/2" drop spindles in front and coilovers in the back, where should I set the tire fender clearance?.

Thanks

Guys

Does anyone have the pin-out for the Vitaloni Tornado mirrors?

Need to figure out the connections between the Tornados and my 2013 Camaro power mirror switch.

Note that the original tire sizes were supposedly 245 x 50 x 15 for the front and 265 x 50 x 15 for the rear tires. I have had a lot of trouble locating the correct tires for the front wheels but have successfully used the 265 x 50 x 15 on the front.

Nelson,

Thanks for the reply, I'm trying to figure what is a good clearance to set between the top of the tire and the fender.

I have coil overs on both ends and can set it wherever I want it.

Thanks

On my 88 I am currently running 265 x 50 x 15 tires on all four corners with the Chromadora rims. There are coil overs on the rear and Rodney's one inch lowering ball joints on the front. The only issue that I have (and it is minor) is that I sometimes get a bit of low speed scrub out of the front when I am at very low speeds. It does not appear to happen at higher speeds. I have been using this combination for more than 10,000 miles and several years and would not hesitate to use it again. BTW, the visual aspect (between the tires and wheel well) is decent looking by my standards

Finally got my Mera to the point that I can drive it some, maybe do a few local shows and then start on the cosmetics.

Suspension is good, brakes work great now and the Series III SC motor runs strong and stays cool.

Thanks Dan

I drove it about 30 miles on Sunday for it's first shakedown cruise since the motor swap, suspension and brake work. All went well and the 3800 sure pulls hard when it starts to boost. It handles way better too, the front springs were too low and the plastic rack bushing was falling out.

I'm trying to decide if I want to leave it black, it's a re-paint or go back with the original color, red. I really like the way your red Mera looks and everybody knows red cars are faster. Decisions, decisions, plenty of time to think about it. I have to fix lots of little stuff and I have a Pisa Euro dash for it before paint.

Hope that it turns out nice when all is said and done.

My wife asked how much longer I would be working on it Saturday evening as I was putting the front wheels back on. I replied, as long as I have it.

If it helps you out any, here is a black 87 with t-tops that is being reconverted from a F308 life to a Mera. Everything on the outside is now done with the exception of the side markers and paint but it now includes a 3800 SC Series II engine mated to the Getrag 282 transmission. Like your vehicle it may always be a work in progress.

Not a Mera but a nice looking replica from my point of view and the limited photos.

Like your vehicle it may always be a work in progress.

That's my plan also, mine still has the Fcar badges but they are soon to be removed. I have a MERA nose badge and MERA letters for the rear.

Why try to pass off a 1 of 247 car as one that 10 to 12 thousand were made? I like my MERA and I can afford to keep it running, maybe not so a 308.

Yeah, not a real mera, but a decent kit, with what appears nice fit/finish, could be another "ReMera" for someone...

Rick,

I am familiar with fairly recent Mera purchases in the US that ranged anywhere from $6500 to $18000. It is highly dependent on the individual buyer and seller are willing to compromise on (interior, paint, engine, etc.). There is a 1987 Mera for sale right now for $11.5 k and is discussed elsewhere on PFF.

I have a 1987 MERA, production number 7039, Painting code B8469
VIN is 1G2PF1196HP238300
It appears that my MERA is built on an SE, which I understand is rare.
Someone who knows how many Mera that exists, based on the SE model?

Jens, My Mera is 7029 (SE like yours), and we've learned thru Dan's work that most (all?) of the first 1987 Meras were built on SE chassis. Yours adds to this understanding. Dan can probably tell you more. His very early production Mera is an SE. There are a few more members here who have SE Meras as well, all early ones.
