Richard, from what I can see it looks like you have some universal rubber weatherstrip about 1/2 in wide. Is it adhesive backed? I would like to add this to my car. Can you post some close up pictures of the weatherstrip? I imagine it can be purchased at an auto parts store.

Dan,

The 88 Formula and 88 GT share the same suspension, and are the only two 6 cyl. models available in 88. In 87 the V6 SE and GT shared the same suspension which was different from the 88 Models.

I may be incorrect on this but as I understand all T-Tops were installed by Cars and Concepts. However in 88 the tops were orderable as a factory option, like the Mera. The car was built sent to Cars and Concepts for the t-top installation, and then to Coorporate Concepts for the Mera bodywork, and finally to the selling dealer.

No, think about it--they may keep a little water out of the engine compartment, that's all. The trunk is sealed by the surround that we've been talking about.

Yes, it's adhesive--strong! Right, about 1/2 inch. I posted this a while back :

I had a strip along the top of the "transom", but it cause a mismatch of the deck lid with the rear fender panels so I removed it. I am considering removing it from the sides, also. I really don't know if it helps anything--or what the PO thought he wanted it to do.

Hmmmm.......maybe I should just leave mine alone.

By the way, How do you adjust the decklid? Mine is slightly high in the back.

Speaking of keeping water out of the engine compartment........has anyone tried to limit the amount of water that can get in there when it rains?

Dan, those wheels are nice, not an exact reproduction but they would look really good on your car!

Finally...here's a pic of the underside of my Mera rear lid. I believe same as all the others. Ever since I installed the new rubber gasket from InfiniteWill, that bad boy (trunk) is like air tight. Hard to see in this pic, but you can barely see some areas where the rubber gasket meets the lid.



Those rims are really nice. Hope they go to a deserving home!

Both the latch mechanism on the trunk lid and the catch on the rear trunk wall are adjustable. After you find the correct position, be sure to snug the bolts well as the heavy deck has a tendency to move them out of adjustment--one result is a trunk light that stays on. This is one thing you might want check after you're through is see if the light goes out--ya gotta be real quick ;-) You can do this with a multi-meter, or wait a while after you close the lid, open the trunk and feel the bulb.

Thanks Richard. This will be my weekend project. Today it is 70 degrees here! I hope it stays this way for awhile.

Hay, you Mera guys, has anyone ever opened up their side scoops for more engine cooling?

I have the side scoop opened up for cold air entry on an 88 with a 3800 SC engine set up.

no you see that thermo is going backwards its soo cold here now or it was this morn.
that equals around 10 degrees according to the weather channel. about 7:30 am

some have as you can see done the engine cooling. Tom did too i think.
i have thought about doing it and/or as a pressure relief in the rear wheel wells.
i got this idea off Jeremy Clarkson from TopGear...UK. Jolly good show, mate!

i have also been fiddling with the idea of a turbo in there too. both sides....i have often wondered if it would work.
or as a "ram air" effect for the air intake. with a little modifying. K&N something or other...

Dan

Yep. Here's a pic, I removed the "water separator."



My very UNSCIENTIFIC experiment consisted of holding a lit cigarette in front of the opening before the mod....no effect that I could see.

After I installed the straight tubing, using another cigarette, the damn suction was strong enough to not only suck in the smoke, but the ashes on the tip of the burning cigarette. So it does make some difference, although I don't think much, if any, on the dyno.

I don't have to worry about rain as this is a "clear weather vehicle." When I wash the car, which is not too often, I tape that area off...just in case. I don't think I would recommend this mod for those who need to drive in the rain.

the best i see with this mod is to remove the hot engine air and replace with cooler incoming air.
and comming in fast. as fast as you drive. that should help with some HP. 1 or 3??
i am in hopes this will help it feel like it does when i get a run in Mera X and its below 50 degrees.
that time earlier when i got out this year it was 35 and it felt like it was helping.
probabally cuz i have not driven it since NOV. oh well its an idea.

Hi Tommy!

Dan, if you remember on #8002 there is a modified cold air intake slanted down to the drivers side scoop, at this position all it gets is dirty, dusty road surface air, and/or warm engine air.
Neither can be good for the engine? How would you remove the fiberglass filler plate from the scoop, take out the screen and saber saw it out, from the out side, or drill out a large hole from the inside, (if you can even get in there). I know this is a change from "Virgin Stock Mera" but isn't it worth it?

hey Richard are you the camera guy?? nice vid. cant wait till Spring.
This reminds me of how i drive on the streets. all weaving around the pot holes and manhole covers....they are murder up here!


Wayne. not too sure what i would do.its a work in progress, on stand by till it gets over 40* here for about 3-4 days in a row. months away.
i am going thru the mera newsletters and pulling out the good stuff.

NEXT is this massive thread of Tommys. i finally scrapped up enough cash for the printer ink and paper reems.
ITS ON! Mera info collection and documentation starts NOW!!!

if you all want in i need pics and a history write up of your rides.
if i do not get anything from y'all....i will just do a Mera X comparison piece with the Proto-Type.....and call it good.
thats was my original idea anyway. to find where Mera X lands in the pile.

after hitting the bricks on the Net. i feel confident that Mera X is a Mera...and its all about how early a Mera it is

is that new white stuff in my driveway???
later

Dan

Yeah, never done video with my little Canon Elf Point and Shoot, so I wasn't sure how much memory I had to use--wish I had taken longer sequences. Then, had to convert format to something small enough to upload. Better next time. Sound came out pretty good!

if you mean the trunk photos i would need close ups from the Formula of Tom's, to see if he actually has the round trunk like i do.
like it should with being a formula....then the Mera people could have used the old GT parts to make his "Mera" trunk square.

here....My OEM SE Fiero trunk is where the aluminum pop rivets too.
how does your 88 Meras differ??
the Formula of Tom's should look like these pics albiet, with a square cut aluminum blank off and gasket.





as far as the hole in the side wall goes i guess i could use this one.....

thanks for the tip, Rick will do!
the rust hole is in the trunk, behind the carpet, just above and to the left of the drivers side wheel.



you can see the rounding of the well kinda...^^^^^
this sucks.....all the way thru. but the rest of the trunk is spotless.....wierd!

the other shots are from the inside of the trunk opening also, toward the dr. side under my aluminum blank offs.
which i am beginning to believe you guys do not have



also wonder why the underside of my panels are not red (see black arrows).anybody?


that may not be good or not... would a "kit" guy cover that or paint the whole thing? hummmmm.....

OHHH! BY THE WAY!! have any of you ever heard of the 6 minute Mera Promo video, CC made for the cars???
i have seen rumor of their existence and found a thread about a guy in Nevada may have one too and a Mera sign.
its in the NewsLetters! how 'boot that?
getyasum!

You have a pic of my 88 trunk don't you?
It's on an Formula, both of the 87's are on SE's I believe. (squared trunks)
I also think that your going to force me to move stuff around in the barn for a photo shoot and it's like cold as a witches brass t*tt*es out side. mot to mention the blockage in front of the door.
Do you also need pics of the trunk square off pieces used? It was really a cheap mod to do on the cars and was not labor intensive as I said before. The early 87 does have a gasket from the rounded trunk of the SE installed but has squared corners. It will have a GT gasket on when it gets a new clutch installed this spring or sooner next time some of the snow goes away so I can get it out of its space.
Want a pic of my parking area in the barn??

first off no i do not have a pic of your trunk unless its in this thread somewhere, new ones wouldn't hurt, besides
#2 you say"both are on SE's I believe.(squared trunks) "but, the SE's have oval trunks. if you mean that both your SE Meras have square trunks...thats different. i would like some pics of that. and some pics of the "easy Fix" round GT square offs. the pics i posted, if you use the same angles in them, i should be able to make that work thank you.

no rush on them....take your time. all pictures are welcome here....even the dreamgirls of muscle!

The only paint on the underside of 8046 is overspray.

Dan, for some reason any Fiero trunk I have seen that has rust seems to start right there. It is not a structural area. if you wanted you could cut a piece of replacement metal and replace the rusted area. For that little damage, I would just POR 15 it and leave it alone. Make sure to force some into the hole so it runs behind the panel as well.

Interesting; here's a pic of AkursedX's trunk on his wild 88 3800 turbo--note the minute (tiny) spot. There must be a water collector on the back side, or a spot where the carpet gets wet.



OBTW, says he wants $9k for the car--love to have it. Dan, this is one hot mama--you need to consider it.

Dan, if you can remove you rear inner fender liner you may be able to treat the rust from the backside as well. After you POR 15 it, you should probably spray some rubberized undercoating on it to seal if from further water intrusion.

some of the dupont spray on truck bed liner works well and is very durable for years. comes in a spray can at your local auto parts store.
