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.

As far as corrosion goes, we just spray the undercarriage with oil every year. No rust.

I don’t understand why you didn’t just drop the whole engine and trans subframe? Had to do it the hard/wrong way, I guess.

marty has convinced me to NEVER own a mid eng car Im pretty sure the only reason the MR2 scene is full of nice humble ppl is because they are broken by their cars haha

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.

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 would have thought the rear suspension/ engine cradle all dropped out as a single unit. I think pulling it out probably would have been worth it.

fixing it. You don’t want it to be for nothing. 2- expect to have to pull the engine. Even if the engine is running good, timing belts will require the engine to be pulled.

Watching this MRPOO series just makes me hurt; many memories of working on cars that just don't want to be changed. Also - does it hurt more knowing that you have a mate there with you, but their main roll is to be on the camera. #weallhavethatuselessmate

little tip - when fitting silicon hoses, spray a small amount of wd40 in it at the ends and it will slide on the pipes so much easier.

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!
