More MERA progress: found and fixed a driving lamp short! It was a bad rocker switch sending pwr to ground directly, blowing the fuse. Opened the drivers side headlight motor; then pins were powder! RD parts on order. gear looked perfect though.
Waiting on parts to come in. going to do the S10 booster swap.

I want to remove the driver's door skin to fix the handle issue correctly. Its just way to difficult to open, I tried the search option, but that has gotten me no where quick.

How do you remove the outer door panel? I see the torx on the jamb side, and the pushpin on the bottom. But don't see much in the A pillar area. I'm sure I'm them somehow.

Thanks

More MERA work done; installed the s10 booster. Almost made me cry making the clearance for the 11" dia. booster. Nice and clean and painted before install. Can't tell a thing is different, other than a big booster!
Also installed 4 new Kicker DS speakers in the stock location. Still...right channels are muted somewhat. radio is getting replaced with another delco "pontiac" radio. CD? who needs CDs. I've got cassettes man!

Next: all new Fluids! BTW: still....no license plates. Still waiting for my DMV appointment.


1/16 update: I delivered #8118 down to Fiero Jon in Tuckerton NJ. It wanted an professional / objective eye to give the car a 100% inspection, service and tires. The ones on the car are from 2001. He knows his stuff....
I need this thing ready for Carlisle!!!!!!!!

The Mera is slightly larger than a 308, especially as the Mera is roughly 4 inches taller, although the shapes are close of course.

I have used the F308/328 cover to provide some protection but mine are mostly used for dust covers when the car is inside my garage. Some people have used a generic medium size car cover to at least cover the vehicle even if it is not form fitting.

I have a Moto Lita steering wheel. I used the hub from my Fiero wheel and a short 6 bolt to 9 bolt adapter to mount the Moto Lita wheel to the Fiero hub. I had to bend the mount tangs on the Fiero hub to match the adapter. I used the plastic collar off the original wheel also to fill in the space between the column and adapter. The benefit of using the Fiero hub is the steering wheel position is about the same as stock.

There is info and pics in these threads

thanks for the picts and ideas!

One other question: how do you remove a stock MERA front bumper? Mine is slightly "IN" on one side, maybe the PO bumped the garage wall or something? no visible damage...but the left side is "in" about 1/2 more than the right side (or right side out too much, I don't know! lol)

any suggestions

IIRC - the back of the front bumper is supported by two (Aluminum?) square tubes near the turn signal lights. These tubes slide inside similar tubes on the body and are secured by a bolt and it's nut. You may have to remove the grill to see this.

FYI. Sent side view of #8071 with raised white letter tires. As for steering wheel I went with a black leather wrapped Nardi.

Thanks Rexgirl: I can see the square tube, and there is a cross bolt. both bolts seem to be in the same position. so I think the bumper got pushed further onto the square tube. I'll have to look more into it when it warms up.

Julian: thanks! got the picts. I really like the white letter out. Just enough different, more "american" looking! Its is a Pontiac!

JR: I know....I know....stock. However, its ALL can be removed and returned to "stock".

Here is the LIST of non stock items by the:

First owner: 1988 -2006: Miller-Woods Turbo, Stainless door sills, Wing above rear window, Hella driving lights, lowering spindles, 1" cut rear springs.
Second owner: 2006 - 2020: Nothing...no mods. drove it maybe 3k miles. garage queen (an ignored one at that).
Third owner: 2020 - ????: RED plug wires replaced with grey during tune (kept originals), New(er) pontiac stereo swapped in (kept OEM radio), new kicker 4x10 and 4x6 speakers, Short shifter installed with leather boot (kept original shifter and boot),
MOMO wheel going on, Formula wheel feels awkward (keeping it of course - no broken paddle horns). Lloyds Mats (tan with MERA 8118 in red).

Anything I'm doing is very quickly "undone". unlike the mods by the original owner.
So with the Mods that were already done.....mine are reverable, minor and will add to the fun driving experience. so heck....why not! I certainly can't UNDO the original mods.

Time to remove the 2003 BFG Rad. T/As! Car was lowered by 1" with drop spindle and cut rear spring. original sizes were on the car (265/50 and 245/50)

I want to match the tire brands Front and Rear, which really limits what I can install.

Here are my options:

Front Original: 245/50 H: 24.6, W: 9.6
Cooper Cobra G/T: 215/65 H: 25.9, W: 8.4
230/60 H: 26.1, W: 9.1
BFG Rad T/A 225/60 H: 25.6, W: 8.9

Rear Original: 265/50 H: 25.4, W:10.4 (kind big for 7" rim!)
Cooper Cobra G/T: 245/60 H: 26.4, W: 10
BFG Rad T/A 245/60 H: 26.4, W: 10

I'm leaning towards: 215/65 and 245/60 Coopers. Front 1.3" taller.....clearance issue??????? I don't know - but narrower. Rear: 1" taller, 0.4" narrower (ok)
If I go with 230/60 up front, its 1.5" taller.....I'm worried!

I wish Cooper made the 225/60! but only BFG does. looking at maybe $30 - $50 more per tire than Coopers....and I think Coopers are BETTER!

Comments? opinions? I even though: 230/60 on all four.....but only for a second! I like the wider rear tires!!!!!!!

Well....seems the promise of Coopers was short lived. Tire shop says there are NOT available, anywhere. Still good sizes....but the shelves are bare for the 215/65s

Bit the bullet and ordered up: BFG Radial T/As. 225/60 front 245/60 rear. a little taller, a little narrower....but should be good.

Following tires, alignment!

Are you prepared to spend a lot of money to get this Mera or are you looking for a low cost bargain?

Exhaust questions:

1) Is the MERA a completely different exhaust than the 88 Formula exhaust system?
2) If MOSTly, the same....what is different.
3) I have a Miller-woods stage 1 set up....does it use the MERA stock exhaust?

I need to find out what exhaust I have....I believe its original to the car. Can some of you fine Mera-ists; post some exhaust detail picts please?? stock and otherwise???

thanks

Rodney Dickman makes Mera repro tailpipes out of 409 Stainless, I am pretty sure that they attach to the factory muffler where the original Fiero tailpipes attached. I have a pair on my Mera and they are excellent quality.

Same exhaust as the 88 V6. I am currently running a 3.4 turbo on an 87 Mera and did not modify the original exhaust other than to use some of Rodney's replacement tail pipes.

Updated the steering wheel, something more comfortable. Certainly.... keeping the original wheel close by. Speaking of which; On the paddle horn steering wheel, there is a little plastic sleeve that holds the horn / spring contact in place with a 1/4 twist. I need one if someone had an extra...,

Good luck on the plastic piece. I have been looking for a while and did locate one on eBay which I purchased a couple of months ago. I have the GM part number for the package which includes the spring, plastic piece, and rod.

no, that is not the part.

Maybe mine is diferent because is has paddle horn buttton, no central "rod:". Its a 1/4 white plastic sleeve ~ 1 1/4" long with a little tab (sort of like a tab on the ole 1156 tail light bulbs). It holds the spring, and contact "button", that is connected to a wire ( not a rod). That wire goes to each paddle. Push the paddle, it grounds the wire, sounding the horn.

I had to cut my stock one to fit the momo / NRG set up.

Are you talking about the turn signal cancel cam?

Dorman makes a Cancel Cam for $5.91 at Advance Auto vs. AC Delco ($19.33) on Amazon. I doubt the AC Delco is made in America.

I checked my P CAR parts book and it shows part # 10032907 for the steering wheel insulator for all fiero steering wheels. My car had the GT wheel and the insulator does not look like that part number. Your description sounds like the one I have.

YUP! Thats the one. I'm going to say the spring / rod is for the center horn button wheels, and the spring / lead is for the paddle horn button wheels.
I ordered one just to have it with my stock wheel "on the shelf". so if the stocker goes back on I'll have all the parts needed on hand.

MERA EXHAUST follow on question: If you look at my post, showing my original MERA exhaust; the tail pipes have a downward bend in the middle. It looks like Rodney's repops do not have that bend. It looks as if I need that bend to clear the bottom "return" under the trunk.
comments????

Another question: what is the surface finish on the black lower valance? smooth or textured? satin black? Mine has "some" texturing....not sure if its original or not.....

Another question: what is the finish of the stock door sills? I have a large polished stainless panel.....stock? i don't know.....

PIcts???

Thank you!

On a stock Mera Rodneys tailpipes connect to the factory muffler pipes which are higher than the muffler pipes on your Mera.

A friend bought a low mile 88 Mera and the door sills were painted body color, they look kinda plain that way. Mine were body color also when I got it. I put a set of brushed stainless I got from Vince at Snapperheads when he was still making Fiero parts. I put MERA vinyl letters on them and I think it gives a more finished look.
