the reason why you never see "glass or carbon fiber fenders is because fenders are welded on. Replacements should be treated the same way to ensure structural integrity.

Here are some differences missed: First of all, the coveted leaf catcher was a late 89 item. Early 87 (and some 88?) cars had chromed interior door handle pulls. My book also says front and rear floor mats were added as a 1988 running change. It also says heated seats were new for 89. I think someon...

List of Merkur Specific "Rotunda Essential Tools"?

Has anyone compiled a list of all of the Rotunda tools used on a Merkur? I could go through each page of the two shop manuals i have, but has anyone done this yet?

It sounds like an unrelated incident to me. The only circuit in the back closely related would be the fuel pump shut off and even then the car should still crank.
I would diagnose this and forget about the taillights.

Eastwood makes great paints and one specifically for bare metal, like your polished housing.
