Just a couple of questions for mera owners with three piece compmotive wheels --- Have you had any problem with leakage? If so did you do a complete disassemble, new gaskets and silicone OR just silicone and if silicone what type did you use --regular home D clear or a hi-temp auto grade? Thanks in advance as I have a set that previous owner gave up on and I want to do it right the first time around.

Didn't notice the PFF thread. Don't know what his reserve is, but with the low miles it's probably worth more than $10k--as an owner I hope he gets a good price ;-) Also, may be kinda rare, not many white ones around--if you like white. Those funky seat covers aren't going to help the sale.

Nice looking car with a few oddities. The hood/headlight area looks a little awkward, but I like how he hid the reverse lights below the rear bumper. The dash is cover too massive for me, but the interior looks clean.

Have any of your guys adjusted your rear decklid? Mine sits up a little high when it is closed. It does not appear to be caused by the rubber bumpers. What is the best way to adjust it properly?

If your talking about the engine cover, mine is flush. As for the front "hood" everybody's it seems is
"up" where it meets the windshield. In fact somewhere in this thread it's discussed.

well in hindsight i do need to re-center mine it has always been heavy to the right. i was considering washers as spacers.
not to sure about height. on mine sometimes it takes 2-3 hard shuts to latch the boot.
cant fix it till it breaks, tho.....see last post above
i have been dreamin of V8 lately

My engine cover is just a tad high compared to the fender edges. I adjusted the rubber bump stops but it did not change anything. Either it must be a latch adjustment or a hinge adjustment, or both. I just don't know which one has more adjustment range.

My rear deck lid use to sit funny....a bit high. I could not figure out how to adjust it, so I took out the rubber seal around the rear trunk and now it's perfect. I never take her out in the rain and I am cautious when washing her. One day I may look at it and see what needs to be done. I even tried lowering the trunk latch hook but the latch just would not reach. Maybe a thinner rubber seal??? No idea. Any pointers?

Julian,

I am going to try and adjust the latch hook and see if there are any adjustments at the hinges themselves. I had the engine cover off when I installed the 3.4 but I marked everything and installed it back the way it was, which was slightly high. I think the latch hook can be adjusted but I need to remove the trunk carpeting. I also have a factory 88 GT trunk seal, and one of the new reproduction trunk seals. The repoduction seal appears to be thicker and may cause the lid to sit even higher. I will have to try it to see if that could be an issue.

I cannot go without a trunk seal as I drive my car too much. Fortunately, my original trunk seal is in great condition which I understand is not the norm.

That's a temperature thing. In the winter mine are "up"--especially at the corners--in the summer they fit flush against the stops. My analysis concludes that the original black secondary structure of the hood has a different coefficient of expansion than the fiberglass shell. Conclusion: live with it, or move to the warm ;-)

Yes, but you don't need to "remove" the carpeting, just pull it back from around the hook. Be sure to re-tighten the hook mounting screws to spec as closing that heavy lid can move the hook.

I found that the non-original seal strip around the edge of the lid was inhibiting alignment--I see no reason to seal the perimeter of the deck lid. There is also some adjustment possible in the latch mechanism--take you pick.

i need some seal down the long way on the left and right. every time it rains and i have to drive Mera X to work the trunk is wet.
runs down the outsides and settles on the fake snakeskin aluminum blank offs and runs into the trunk well, itself.
its evident by the spot rusting, not much but, enough.
i was thinking some part of a windshield wiper edge......something to flap back and forth.

Is there any adjustment at the hinge attachment by the window? It does not look like there is much adjustment at the latch mechanism, so I assume the hook has the most. I am not sure what you mean about a seal strip at the edge of the decklid. Is this on the side or rear of the lid?

runs down the outsides and settles on the fake snakeskin aluminum blank offs and runs into the trunk well, itself.
its evident by the spot rusting, not much but, enough.
i was thinking some part of a windshield wiper edge......something to flap back and forth.



Fix the trunk seal

Yes, but you may have do the unobvious--adjust them UP to bring the rear edge down (?)

I have seal strips on the sides (top of fender panel) and rear edge of the deck lid (seals against the top of the transom). These hold the deck lid about 1/4" higher than the fender line. They are pretty dense foam and would be difficult to compress that extra 1/4" by forcing the deck lid down by adjusting the latch. A solution might be to replace it with less dense foam--or remove.

I think there was a discussion with pictures in this thread back 10 or 20 pages. See http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F.../HTML/077195-47.html about half way down the page.

OBTW, is anyone else having trouble with the text not "wrapping" on this page?

Yeah, what the hell? Wayne, see if you can delete the text version of your link from Ebay and see if that corrects the page.

I did it, but Rick has to remove it from his Quote too.

I just returned from a "cruise" on e-bay, there is a company that parts out cars and has a complete 308 interior listed, part by part.
