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.

      Mighty Car Mods Marty, I know that was a real struggle to get that tank in but it did make me feel better as I’m constantly working on car projects on my own and now I’ve realized what I must look like. I seem to curse more than you though!

    Have you delt with the "hose from hell" yet? It usually requires you pull the motor to remove a 3" hose. NEVERMIND! 4 mins in and you mention it. I wish I had an mr2....

      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.

      If any of you do decide to buy one of these, two things: 1- check the body for rust. Make sure anything not repairable is good because you’re going to be putting a lot of money i

    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!

    It's no longer an MR2, due to all the parts that you had to replace. Let's call it the MR2.6. Or the MR3, or 4.

    marty if the side of the head is cast iron you could put this allen wood screw in the head. because off the big thread it wont break the cast iron easily and you can tap in the original threat. it worked like a dream on my moped! www.meubelpoten.nl/inschroefmoer-rampamoer-inbus-m8x15mm.html keep in mind the website is in dutch you can put it in the head with an allen key then drill out the allen key bit so you get a round hole then put the threats you need in it job done!
