LOL!!! Nah, not a direct shot. Just all of a sudden seems like there are some seriously nice photos here, and I dunno....call me a perfectionist. I think its just one of those cheap mods that makes the Mera look better, if not complete.

Received payment Nelson, thanks!

A-Mare-i-ca

your spelling (to me) sounds like "Mer- rrari" - Mer-maid - "Merrari"
hahahahaaaa...too funny

seems like the Postie had mine on Saturday!! i was nappin' so i get them today. i got to put the dough in my bank then transfer to PP. as you know that will take 3-5 days....so by Monday, maybe! thanks again, boss!!

as far as any restoration on Mera X.....none i like the Org Patina....the "Antique Look" it says "hey, i am a 24 year old car!"

i know, too much "roadshow" but, unmolested is just that......

As I recall on mine they look like flat blade screws. I would think that they would be phillips head originally If you know yours are original to the car a picture would help. It's just me being overly picky again.......Tom is rubbing off on me.

Got my Badges.... payment sent...... worth every penny.


As for the screws on the inside of my reverse ligts.... typical pointed drywall screws.... probably left over when Corporate Concept put up the addirion..... same time they got the reverse lights from the Ford Escort Wagon, the GTS badges from Chrysler Lebaron and the MERA letters from GRAND AM SE.... not sure where the 2.8V6 came from...probably a GM Lumina or Phoenix. No wonder GM knows nothing about the MERA.

BTW I still want to know the meaning behind the big "M" MERA logo.

Those are the same darn screws that are in my reverse lenses..... I tend to want to keep things original looking, but I think these will have to go into the "removed original parts box". Stainless allen heads anyone?

El Paso weather report: A cool 101 today.

Just found this one:

FOR SALE – 1988 MERA Ferrari - $19,800.00

For two years only, Pontiac authorized the production of the MERA Ferrari. For 1987 about 88 Fiero GTs were converted into 1987 MERAs. With the introduction of the 1988 Fiero, the MERA utilized the 1988 Formula because it was a better value. About 159 were made on the Formula chassis, bringing the total MERAs produced to 247. Due to potential lawsuits from Ferrari, production of these cars ceased.

This car is not a kit car! it carried the full Pontiac Warranty and could be serviced at any Pontiac dealership. The frame is a Pontiac Fiero and numerous changes were made, the most significant being a completely redesigned suspension to realize the potential of the mid-engine layout. Now unique to the Fiero, the new suspension included new two piece brake calipers and upgraded brake rotors for 1988. The V6 engine benefited from evolutionary improvements.

I drove this car daily for 8 years. It is not fragile and can withstand Chicago commutes and harsh winters. The owner before me added many extras to make it much more like its famous Italian cousin. The seats were upgraded to full leather Recaro seats and many exclusive decals and badges were added along with special alloy wheels. This car works!

I am confident in this car and would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. It was repainted mirror black 2 years ago at a considerable expense. I am selling it because I no longer have space to store it. This car has always been garaged. I have had numerous compliments on it. Not many can tell the difference, except for my insurance agent (the insurance is less) and the occasional mechanic (uses Pontiac parts to service).

This car is one of the last MERAs produced # 8102 and hence, has a lot of upgrades.

Below are the technical aspects:
2.8 Liter V6 engine
5 speed stick shift with manual overdrive
Power steering
Power Windows
A/C
Power Brakes
Automatic Antenae
MPG 17 city and 27 Hwy
Alloy Wheels
Leather seats
Premium Sound Alpine sound with eq.
Custom exhaust

Please call with question, Thanks, Bob (630) 903-9877

Received this back today from the modeler:

Assume these are the badges you want us to make

==> http://myfiero.com/uploads/17861_.jpg (it is a pic of Rodney's letters in a frame)

I'm sure we can do this. I would figure on 3-6 hours of work and we charge $25/hour. My only concern is getting 4 sets from 4 donor sets, as it may be difficult to cleanly separate the "R" and the "A" (in "GRAND"), and the "A" and the "M" (in "AM"). I think it will be fine, but won't know for sure until I have the donor emblems in hand. It might take a little more time if I have to build up/fill in the backs of the letters to resolve the cut areas. My number is xxx-xxx-xxxx if you want to chat. This is "side work" for me, so please call after regular business hours or on the weekend.
Thanks.
Dave

As I calcualte it that is $75 to $150 for the modelers plus the costs of the letters. I have to add up the money I have spent per set but it is around 75 dollars. This is going to make the letter sets around $225 to $250 dollars.

Is anyone interested?

You know, I don't own a Mera but I'll tell you for that asking price, I'd buy a real 308GTS. I have one locally that was owned by some old lady and she is selling it for $19,500. THEN I'd buy a Mera just to have and compare

John,

Note thet the R bottom is slightly back cut at the right side on the original letters. I assume that this was done to use both the R and A letters from the same set. I could provide a picture if that would be helpful.

It looks as if I can confuse issues even more thoroughly when I note that the 87 Mera has a standard screw in the BU lights while the 88 has a Phillips screw. My other 88 is not available for a photo and the other 87 does not have BU lights since it is in an F308 configuration.

Mike in OK. Do you mean Mera7? The pathological compulsive liar? I would never have the ethics to suggest to anyone to send a car to that guy. Almost everything he says seems to be a lie. He says he is here for the Mera owners. In my opinion he is here to rip off Mera owners.

Nelson




1987 Mera




1988 Mera


Nelson, my 88 has flat blade screws like Dan's. Maybe because it was only #8011 they had not run out of flat blades yet. Or, maybe they just used what ever was handy at the time.

Dan, that pre 88 triangular plastic cover will fit the 88 loosly. Most people will put a dab of silicon to keep it in place. Rodney used to make a metal cover for the 88's I have one that I plan to install when I detail my engine compartment.

Hey Rodney, what kind of screw hold the back up lenses of your Mera in place??? You've had you car the longest of anyone here as far as I know.

It appears the lowly flat blade screw may be original to the Mera after all.....even if they came from the hardware store.

i think they (the screws) may be OEM to the Ford Escort.....i need to image search for the proof tho

that would be cool.....this stuff is really exciting to track.
these little things would have been missed by a Kit Car maker or not avaliable after certian dates.
making them hard to replicate and/or copy....for a cheat!

drywall screws and alum pieces, the flatblade reverse light screw, the 3 nylox/allen bolt for the 2 slat rad grill.....
this hardware assumption, is proof of Mera to a point.
its cool that it transends the 1987 and shows on some 1988's.

now, i am the guy who will sand or sand blast the Original screws to keep them OEM but sometimes you have to go "new"
for me not yet, but this Bumper bracket may be the first..."New" part on Mera X

Mine was also this same type of screw when I bought my Mera. #8110. I changed to a stainless steel allen button head type.
