I could use a hand with some info if anyone knows where I can obtain a lower front airdam (valence) for my 328 replica. It looks unbalanced without one.

Wow! Info overload in just the past few days!

Joe...did you post a construction thread on that Mitsubishi dash install? I would not alter my Mera, but wow, that would look awesome in my 88GT.

Open question, more out of curiosity. If 247 Meras were built (or I guess 248 if we include the 86 prototype), how does the Mera stack against other "production" cars? Are there other production cars with lesser totals?

There were less than 100 Etnterras--some say only 28. As for the Fiero-based Zimmer, I believe only 170 were built. OBTW, there were only 712 plastic F-308s.

Tom,

Here are some stats for you to get started.

In 1969 Pontiac built 697 Trans Am's. Of that eight (8) were convertibles. In our Fieros the closest production total is the 241 yellow 88 GT's like the one I just sold In 1972 Pontiac only built 1286 455- HO Trans Ams in white, blue, or the extremely rare red SCCA model, of which eight (8) again were produced. (See a pattern here) Of the remaining 72's only 211 Lucerne Blue ones were built. A blue one is in my garage

I forgot about those Enterra's! I wonder if they bought Fiero's right off the line to convert? I'm thinking they did.

Rick...I hate you!! You have too many toys! Nah, just kidding! I'm still trying to find a way to bribe the wifey so I can make an offer on that 88 Formula on the Big Isle.

Tom,

I have owned the 72 455-HO Trans Am since 1981. My wife told me that was the only car I could never sell. It will pass everything, except a gas station.

On the Formula, tell the wifey it is for "her". Hey, the silver Vette is titled in my wife's name.

Sorry Tom, no construction pics yet. It's only temporarily in place, I need to take parts apart to fix some A/C ductwork and hopfully get the defroster portion working. I'll try and do some pics. It sits just a hair low and kinda restricts room for the knees but it's useable. Still working out the bugs.

you aint just whistling Dixie

the way i see it....with the 1988 Fieros being the final upgrade, with new suspention and the lot....the '87 and '88 could be seperate due to that major difference in the two alone.....it would also bring the total number of each down too boot.
1- ( '86) 88- ( '87) and 159- ( '88) ohhh... man, soooo many 1988's
this is just a humble opinion

You never cease to amaze me with the nice work you do. That is the best looking automatic shift knob I have seen on a Fiero!

Tommy,
that sure is nice. kinda Short tho, for me.
looks like an old Arcade video game controller. wocka, wocka, wocka.
i should look into something like this so i can see my bach-up camera better.
i got a tall T shifter. not sure if its OEM Fiero or not. i do not believe my steering wheel is OEM.....
PEACE,
Dan

PS ....and too all the shiney ashtrays sing "BILNG, BLING!!!"

Never seen that shift knob setup before; I'm sure a lot of PFF members would be interested if someone were to construct a kit...

Thought I might post a pic of the updated shifter. I copied the Rodney Dickman automatic shifter by using a mid 90s camaro shift ball and a piece of thick wall PVC. When in park, the ball is not as close to the HVAC controls as it appears in the photo. To shift in and out of gears, press down on the entire ball assembly or lift up rather than have to push a button. The whole hand fits over the ball when in park and you don't bang your knuckles on the A/C controls.


The next step will be altering the shifter surround to replicate a gated shifter like the Italian version.

Thanks for the compliments all! I provided as much info if anyone wants to do the same, you see these round leather Z-28 IROC knobs on e-bay once in a great while. No kits...otherwise mine would not be so unique.

Joe, that's a nice knob setup as well! I had thought about getting Rodney's, but I had my heart set on one that was leather covered.

Dan, you go for that bling emblem! Hmmm...that kinda gives me an idea, I'll have to check back with the lady who does the engraving here.

I have two more "upgrades" coming this weekend and will post pics. LOL...the Mera is spoiled rotten...

Ok Guys, I am not good at this stuff, but now you can finally see the latest pictures and info.

"Tom" in Taiwan sent me more pictures and info on the Ferrari sounding exhast system.
http://tw.myblog.yahoo.com/...er/article?mid=10217

These new pictures show some kind of silencer in the system. If you have a Yahoo toolbar, you can hit "translate" to read some of his other links.

Tom, me too. I have one in leather also, but I wanted to experiment on a plain knob in case I screwed it up. I'll do another one with the leather knob at some point and sell this one on the forum.

Joe...thanks for the idea! I may redo this knob and go your route, no need for the release button. Let's see...prob 1/2" PVC tubing will slide nicely over the shaft housing. Got that. Then just need to figure out how to fit the knob onto the PVC pipe. I'm betting you drilled it out and glued it right into the knob?? Drop the plastic white thingy back in, cut to length, slide the new knob/shaft assembly over (after painting black), and that's it. Wow...this opens the door to MANY leather knobs. LOL...back to the drawing board!!

Bingo! In fact, didn't have to drill out the knob at all, the pvc fit right in place. I did have to open up the inside of the pvc just a little with a drill bit so that it slipped over the factory shifter stalk. 5 minute epoxy took care of the bonding. It was really quite simple.

I "futz" pretty good on a manual gearbox, and I like driving mountain roads when the manual seems to respond better.

That leads us to our next survey question. Is you Mera automatic or manual? I'll answer first.

All Meras are 5 speed manuals and the F308 rebody is a four speed manual.

With my occasional gout attacks, thankfully my Mera is an auto.

Hey Mike...catch anything?

Got some new visors off e-bay from a guy named Lucas. He always has a bunch of Fiero stuff for sale, and has re-done visors once in a while. My previous visors were from Tom (FieroThomas), and while he does really nice work, these visors are a little nicer, the color is darker (more beechwood...whatever that is), and his has the mirror on the passenger side (which was the buying point for me). I also like the longer stitch work.





LOL...I think I'm up to 8 different shades of brown in the car.

COME ON DOWN.... we will go noodlin.... lol ill use your fingers as bait lol. naw noodlin isnt so bad as long as you dont grab ahold of one bigger than you. yes there really are catfish here in oklahoma bigger than men. ok true story... at lake texhoma on texas and okla border the spill way gate would not open. the engineers decided something must be lodged against it. so they sent down a diver... when the diver came back up from the bottom of the lake he told them he would never dive in that lake again. he told them there was a catfish the size of a vw bug down there. so next they sent down a dive team... with chains and a crane. they proceeded to chain the fish and try to pull it from the water with a crane. ended up having to shoot the fish due to it being dangerous and trying to kill the divers. then when they did pull it out it was huge. since they had just shot it they cut it up and had a fish fry...lol true story. i am told it was not the size of a vw though and only weighed in at 290lbs or something like that.

If my count is correct we have six manual Mera's (three belong to Nelson) and three automatics that post here. I am not counting rebodies. We need to get other Mera owners on this thread somehow.

Howdy....
the 1986 proto is a Stick. not sure how many speed.
and it appears that our international Brother in Sweden, Mera #7005 is a 5 speed.

Hey Mike. a 300 lb. fish is almost 2 of me. i aint playing....'ell no. thanks for the invite, tho.

theres a Mera Owner in NJ that has ripped off a PFF member. they are calling for a mass Keying of the car.
i have offered my services as "The Batousai".....we will see if anything is to gain from this. like maybe the DeadBeats Mera.
