OK, should have noted the glass. Mine is very similar--my captive nut appears to be a lock nut. I'll take a picture and send it along--may not be today.

Ditto here!



What about this bracket setup? Its about midway on the rear clip, both sides.



When I took apart my reverse lights, I remember those drywall screws. I went ahead and re-used them, though, I didn't want to risk stripping out the hole with a different screw.

I had some downtime this past weekend, so I worked on all things...the ash trays.

I used a dremel with a wire brush to clean them out, then gave them a good cleaning with lacquer thinner. Primed them and then painted them with the same "chrome" paint I used for the reverse light housings. Not really chrome...more like a super glossy silver. It's actually not too bad, just need to keep the can well-shaken. I applied three coats and then let them sit in the sun for a while.



Here's what they look like installed:



Absolutely nothing is going in them, like cig butts, coins, lost/found screws and nuts, etc. Paint is ok since this is more of a bling-thing.

Now I just have to look around for a perfect 88 auto shift plate. The previous owner left a nice cig burn (between the left ash tray and the shifter). LOL...not really noticeable except to me.

Thanks for the compliments! Australian, I used one coat of Dupli-Color primer, then finished it with three coats of the "chrome" paint. Not sure how long that will hold up, but nothing will go in them. Maybe I should have sprayed them with D-C gloss clear coat; I've always had good luck with that brand of clear. Goes on dull, but when it drys, its crystal clear. But...they looked great as is after the "chrome" paint, so we'll see.

Hey Dan, sent you an e-mail re: the '87 nose badges.

Cheers,
Tom

Here are my body brackets:




Doesn't show in the pics, but the body brackets are attached with screws.

Interesting note; all my body panels are gray primered on the reverse side. I noted that Tom's are not.

OBTW, Beautiful ashtrays!

My body panels are not grey either. they are yellow weave.


Say,reholmes how are your panels on the sides of both deck lid skins front and back held on??
please say pop rivets?? I hope.

After seeing the backs of both of your louvers I can tell you that mine are reproductions, some how. My drivers looks good, and most of the passenger side looks good 'cept that wood area, but mine are made of two different materials. and the backs are completely flat. wonder where they came from??

Hey, maybe mine is the knock-off!

I think a small operation like CC, probably doesn't have very mature manufacturing processes, nor a very long logistics tail, so some things like priming the panel reverse side, or small part consistency over the life of the product line, doesn't happen.

OBTW, a close look at my side grills shows they may have been painted with road tar! I may be doing some intricate color sanding. Another note: The lower panels behind the rear wheels on my car are black vice the red body color--why in the world. . . ?

Some time later--

OK, checked the hood and deck skins, they're riveted--found some more color sanding to be done!

I guess the reason my lower body panels are black; the panels and lower engine grill is all one piece. Not quite sure where I would mask it off to paint the red.

hey whats up. can you take a picture of the "one piece lower engine grill???
also thanks on the info about the pop rivets. I wonder why you two guys have screws. maybe its an 88 thing. or a confirmation of early Mera Prod # for me. Yeah I'm still looking for that SCUM BUM prod #.

Yeah, well, your paint is a lot better than mine. Nice thing about paint--easily redoable. OBTW, that's a perfect lower panel mask line.

Speaking of logos--I would like to design a large fender decal (ala the F-car), maybe gold/sliver on black or black on yellow ;-). Here's my first cut:

I don't color either--I can't stay inside the lines, and I press too hard and break my Crayolas.

I opened the gray and white one, which I created in PowerPoint using a logo from the web and a font named Bonk, using Gimp (a free equivalent of P'Shop) and let the software fill in the colors.

Try Gimp, it's free. Even more powerful than PS, but long learning curve.

Nice idea guys! That would look great if someone could CNC that on 1/4" aluminum or s/s, and then have the color of the car show thru. I imagine that would be pretty pricey, though.

Well, I picked up the first order of 87 Mera nose badges, and was disappointed.



Not in the laser engraving...that's flawless. But it just doesn't look right, like the gold one, without the border. Second order will be going in next week, so stand by.



In the meanwhile, I may consider sticking them here...later...maybe. I don't want to overdo it...less is more, I think.

In my work with the Air Force, we need to make a lot of plaques. I use this gal who owns her own shop near Pearl Ridge Shopping Center. She recently upgraded to a new laser engraver; combined with her artistic talent, she does really nice work.

them's the bomb. but, I agree they need the silver border around. still better that none at all, thanks for the effort Tom. as mentioned eariler "YOU THE MAN".

P.S. they would make great key chain plaques or something of the such.
i'd try putting one on a truckers hat, and maybe a coffee mug. for starters. Then get the bordered ones for car. if you need to
find a home for dem, please do not hesitate to PM. : ) Later-

LOL...good suggestions Dan for the "rejects." I don't think they would stand up to the abuse for a key chain, but that gives me a idea since my engraver also does custom key chains. Now that she has the artwork in her data base, she could engrave this on almost any flat surface. Hmmm....I'll have to check with her on the possibilities. A mug might may work, but it may stress the black area to make the curvature of the cup.

Tell you what...I'll send one of the "rejects" to you for "testing and evaluation" purposes. In the mail today.

This something more along the lines of what you wanted?

I made it from scratch in Illustrator so it can be any size you want with whatever changes you'd like.

Looks great! i love the whole "Screw Ferrari!" thought concept. ;] a fiero's a fiero, and should be viewed as one. it's special.

and EVERYBODY'S got a ferarri, nowadays. only, like, 500 people have meras (i think it was 500. i don't even know what ta mera is, to be honest [special edition fiero, is my guess.])

anyway... keep it up! it really does look good.

There were only 247 MERAs built so it is unlikely that 500 people have them unless ownership is shared. I understand that there may be somewhere around 70 or less MERAs known at this time. BTW, the MERA resembles a F308/328 vehicle.

and EVERYBODY'S got a ferarri, nowadays. only, like, 500 people have meras (i think it was 500. i don't even know what ta mera is, to be honest [special edition fiero, is my guess.])

anyway... keep it up! it really does look good.

247 made only maybe 100 left. I'd say rare. theres one on ebay now.


Just an idea..... How about a Corporate Concepts badge that resembles the Pininfarina emblem ahead of the rear wheel of the Mera in this picture. Does anyone make Mera Emblems that covers the Fiero inserts on the inside door handle surround? Also does anyone make a "Mera" steering wheel badge?

I made it from scratch in Illustrator so it can be any size you want with whatever changes you'd like.



This looks great. Could something like this be made into a center cap cover for the Cromadoras?

At least, that's what it would look like.

For the center cap, yes, it could be made into it, but I won't be personally pursuing the idea. But you can.

That is great! Could these be made in a vinyl decal that looks like polished aluminum?
