A Real Mera in Paradise (Page 2/705)

Thanks for the nice compliments!


LOL...well now, I'm not really sure if that's a real Mera badge or not! It is thick, but more like 1/16" than 3/16". Its made of some vinyl/rubber material, with what appears to be a thick clear coating/resin. When I bought the car, there was a bunch of old glue near the door handle tab, and when I found the badge, it looked like it had fallen off of that area. I cleaned it up, and since it was the exact right size, I put it in the same indentation that I pulled off the Ferrari nose badge. Its definitely not the flat Mera stickers that Rodney sells, if that's what you're referring to.

CA Speeder9: I e-mailed you the larger, hi-res pics taken with my son's 12 megapixel Nikon.

Here's one more before-and-after set.

Before: Plain license plate bracket and really awful-looking reverse lights:

After: Really nice, heavyweight Pontiac license plate bracket I bought off e-bay. Reverse lights look MUCH better after painting the insides.

If I can ever relocate my original nose badge, I will take a picture of it and e-mail it to you. Right now I am going off memory since it disappeared during my last move. Yours may be original after all.

Thanks for the compliments!

Nelson, let me know if/when you find that original badge! LOL...it would be nice to know whether or not I have at least ONE original badge for the car.

Sorry, I think I messed up by sending them all in one e-mail! I just re-sent in separate e-mails since each pic is 6-7 megs.

These are the original 88 Mera emblems. The 87's generally were silver with black lettering etc. Some 87's may have had the gold type I have heard. The 87 nose badges had Corporate Concepts below the MERA word.

Although I did not take any pictures there were silver plastic covers for the large opening in the Cromadora rims. I have 2 sets. I'm sure these are now extremely hard to find. They had no emblems on them. To see the small center Mera emblems you had to take the large plastic covers off.

I do make reproductions of these tail pipes.

This picture shows an 88 Mera with the Cromadoras and the large plastic center cap.
