This MR2 is full of (nasty) surprises

Last episode Marty was working on the MR2 which turns out to be not quite as clean as he first thought. Almost every bolt was seized or rusted, and while the body itself is in reasonable condition just about everything attached to it doesn't work. This episode the fuel tank tank needs to be removed and new coolant hoses installed throughout the car. The MR2 slowly but surely being restored to it's former glory but there's still a lot of work left to do.

  • Hands down best penetrating fluid I've used is just a 50/50 mix of 100% acetone (Nail polish remover) and ATF fluid. Just mix in a metal old school style oiler for easy application and shake before use. Super excellent and cheap!

  • Wouldn't this all be much easier if he just pulled the engine from the start? I know he doesn't want to since this is supposed to be doable for diyers, but this is already way past the limit for amateurs.

  • The first time I watched this, I had not seen the origin of the music. Rewatching it now, I can't help but imagine Moog dancing on the roof of the MR2, imagining a dance crew all around. Marty wondering, as usual, what's going on...

  • Marty, I can relate to your frustration in this video so much with how old bolts brake and new parts are wrong parts. I bet you wish there was someone to give you an extra hand with that fuel tank lol. As someone that almost always has to work on my cars by myself i wish i had a camera guy to watch me struggle.

  • Not sure if this would've helped with your tank, but for motorcycles a common thing to do is get a bunch of clean nuts and some denatured alcohol, throw those in the tank and just shake the hell out of it for an hour or so, helps remove loose rust and cleans up the inside quite a bit!!

Only upside is that they are so easy to sell because they have such a passionate fan base and I have had people drive a 1000 miles to pick my car up no problem!
