This MR2 is full of (nasty) surprises

648 mijë shikime38

    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.

      4. BigggRoss

        I bet at the factory they mount the fuel tank before putting the body on the frame lol

        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!

      MR2 quick remove tank - only Marty can do this... ^_^

      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!

      Marty's internal monologue this entire episode: "Why couldn't I just be working on a Subaru right now?"

      1. soinu foig

        Martys gonna win this, no challenge

    5. Windupmykilt

      You poor soul, that fuel pump was a whole new planet worth of gross. Keep it up!!

    6. Marco Francisco

      the music is so bad i had to mute the video

    7. ROVER25X

      You should get a bare turbo block for Yaris Hilton

      I always thought that the smart is a terrible car to work on, but this seems to be much worse.

      This was so ilarious and well done at the same time ! Great work guys

      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 into 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.

      Thanks for the <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="480">8:00</a> shout out. It's very hard and we weep. Alot. Everything rounds off, snaps off or just isn't there anymore.

    13. Toto Abicyclette

      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.

      Holly advisement

    26. Mighty Little Shop

      I never really realized how little rust they usually deal with there. Good for you guys!

    27. big Hurtt

      I'm near Cincinnati and I have had heat shields and backing plates rust completely away on my 2000 Sierra 3500. And exhaust bolt/nut combos at flanges, so I've heard it rust And on a windy day I hear the clear coat peeling.....

      Video needs a Seated Marty Flipping the Bird" counter 🤣

    45. Absolute Longplay

      You guys should modify the MR2 and give it some modern power.

    46. otto leeverink

      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! 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!

    47. Jacob Prius

      Why do you all not wear gloves?

    48. Edward Peters

      Someone should send you a 20 year old vehicle from Ontario to work on. Make sure your Tetanus shot is up to date.

    49. Kevin Cassidy

      hey guys, ive had a good look around, but cant find the link to buy ryobi and get 10% to go to your charity can someone link the ryobi video or link

      How to build an mr2 in the factory. Step 1: Install fuel tank Step 2: add rest of the car Step 3: never remove fuel tank

    52. hen ko

      I just so wish you'd wear eye protection. Rust in the eye can turn serious.

    53. Kas b

      man, and to think i could buy a rust free first gen with a 20v swap and a 6 speed for under 3k

      1. hen ko

        MCM = WCW??! Women Crush Wednesday fuck yeee

    54. Benjamin Gillies

      Weird fuel tank? Challenge accepted - Mitsubishi Pajero IO. fuel tank is a 2 ft long horse shoe over the rear prop shaft. come with 2 level senders, 2 fuel pumps(transfer from left to right and main pump on right) only saving grace is floor mounted access panels under rear seat..

    55. Rimantas V

      that's not a rust.... Thats a rust (showing at his 93 celica, that endured 27 winters and salt)....

    56. Blaise Howard

      what was that song playing at the start?

    57. MR2 Australia

      Been there. Done that.... 🙂

      Those beats tho!😳🤩

      When we seeing a supra being worked on?

    60. The Ghetto Garage

      So did you get tired of the Evo 9 having the random no reason issues they’re known for and just get rid of it?

    61. The Ghetto Garage

      “I never owned an Evo 9”

    62. David Cocker

      Thanks for the great real world video

    63. markcozzie

      A good cheap turbo up grade for these is the turbo from the gt4 celica st205, (think it's called c26),or if money not a issue then a garret Gt28rs 👍

    64. Byron Dixon

      I used to think an MR2 would be fun. Thanks for showing me the error of that thought. 😬

    65. slenderbrine k

      Should have bought a Pontiac Fiero instead of a MR2, fiero is the best mid engine car.

    66. Justin De Witt

      Congratulations Marty, you did it. I no longer want an MR2...

    67. JayWay Official

      Throw a Barra turbo in it

    68. Charlie Chao

      If this was your first car and you worked on mostly mid-engine cars, do you think you would have been just as frustrated?


      MCM = WCW??! Women Crush Wednesday fuck yeee

    70. B. Wills

      I love the struggle featured in this episode. Reminds me of earlier episodes and is reassuring that everyone struggles with their project cars

    71. Andrew Cash

      with all your hard work i hope you kind of keep up with moog

    72. Hanky Bannist8r

      I'm a die hard Toyota guy, this was an assanine design and we appreciate your enthusiasm and hard work Marty !

    73. trwsandford

      Everyone wants a red hose kit now!

    74. Sheign_

      Marty is secretly a wrestling fan i see. WCW

    75. Visualfedz

      Yes buy an MR2. Don't buy one like how you bought it. complete rest bucket!! You should have bought a clean one without rust. They're phenomenal cars.

    76. Miles Allison

      get rid of this cringy ass music please

    77. Relentlezz41

      I hope you win Marty. This looks like hell to have as a project.

    78. Rohan Minter

      The harder it seems to finish a build the better it is at the end

    79. MRnickee Jones

      I'm so glad Marty has bought one of these before I did I'm nowhere near as mechanically minded him they look like a ball ache to work on he has changed my mind

    80. BWGPEI

      Sorry Marty - I quit doing it. Newish Subaru and no more worries :-)
