Faded paint like this was prevalent on most late 80 vehicles. It was caused by the poor quality first examples of water based paint GM had to start using in 87. US car companies had to switch over from oil based paint due to emissions. I wonder what kind of paint would hold up the best on the fiberglass body? Most Mera's I have seen develop stress cracks in the paint over time.

The Vitaloni mirrors are no longer produced in this style. You may be able to find some replacement parts online. If you find an NOS set be prepared for sticker shock. Most people seem to replace them with later style Ferrari look mirrors if they are too far gone.

these are the OEM centers with your GT wheels. i assume you have a 1987 Mera for that reason alone. i only really care about the '87 Mera anyway but dont tell the "Mera In Paradise" fellas OK

Well that's the thing, Mine is an 86 chassis and I don't believe the cradle was ever removed.. its an oddball car that I just need to get figured out, It is a mera body but It was swapped onto an 86 car, Don't know why either.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/eBa...nkw=vitaloni&_sop=16

these here are the OEM for sure!! the Tornados!
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mas...em35bd18e083&vxp=mtr
*EDIT*
ohhh damn, i shoulda checked the link first. thems in horrible condition at that price. i have seen sets on Ebay for $1200 but nicer by far!!! so thats about right with the unreal reconditioning these will need ....peeeuuuu



I think I might have found a replacement, The ones listed there are in about the same shape as mine, I don't really need OEM as long as they look the same, Also don't need power as mine wenrt hooked up when the body was swapped,

since you dont have Cromadora wheels i think you may have a 1987, still. having the Cromadoras are a dead giveaway thats it was an '88, since you have the rest of the accessories necessary
i'm rootin for ya. the 87's had a smaller production total by more than half i like limited stuff as i am sure you do too.

its maybe an optical here but do you have a sticker on the very top, left side in this photo?
and is that sticker on the right a Fiero Sticker??

i cant tell but it kinda looks like it has been painted over or if gone it may have left a whitness mark like the trunk letters did.

another thing Mera i see, you will need to replace is the OEM rear lid bracket. its signature to the Mera conversion.

With some 1 inch hubcentric wheel spacers installed, those wheels would look great and fill up the fender wells. Less expensive than replacing wheels and tires. Can you post some pictures of the damage to your side view mirrors?

Just noticed, your front bumper is "flipped". I did that to my Mera. It looks better this way. Is you car lowered in front?

could you post a few pics??
i would love a cheap(er) set to swap out with my OEM ones.
i fret that i come out the store or something and see them swiped. they can retail an easy $800 I hear if found that is.

a little boast, mine and #6001 are the only Mera i know of that has one Manual mirror.
mines on the drivers side and the Prototype has the drivers side powered. which is weird.

picture from my little visit in 2009 hummm...cant remember. that day was cool as heck!
i am trying to buy it.

Even though they were trolls- they made you look dumb, ignorant, and played you like a fool. Sorry.

Comparing a Mera to a GTR . One of the saddest pissing contests I've seen in a long time.

Ordering some parts from EVM_Rob and getting to work on this thing... I'm having my mechanic bleed out the clutch because I have other obligations right now But its well on its way, After the clutch is working its going to a friend of mine for a paint job, I've decided that I'm going to get it repainted the gloss red it came with.

We'll I have some VERY lazy brakes... my 2 front brakes the sliders are seized up but my mechanic thinks they can be freed up, And I have one completely seized caliper in the back driver side, And while they are off I'm getting new pads and rotors all the way around, My mechanic says the car is bringing in a ton of people just to look at it lol, Also be aware sourcing brake calipers is becoming very hard for this car, autozone has an indefinite ETA as to when they will be able to get them, Pepeboys has a 2 week backorder and advance auto parts got me the last one in the area due in tomorrow.

Are they different calipers than what the "regular" 84-87 Fieros use?

See if you have a "delcoline" parts store in your area. I know there is one in philly. They should have the parts or send them out for R&R (check for a federated / fisher) parts store.

Its the regular 84-87, only difference between the cars is the body, but in my hunt for a caliper last night no one could get one.
