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.

    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.

    That questionable object in the air filter looks like it is there to prevent filter collapse. Air is pretty thick stuff at high speeds and large pressure differentials. I wonder if it is a standard thing for that filter series or a filter add on? 🤔

    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!!

    I have owned 5 MR 2's 2 turbos and 3 aspirated (one a parts car. They cost a fortune to fix because of the rear engine configuration but are fun to drive but no match for the more modern BMW 3 series and Golf Gti's. 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!
