My first G-Limited MR2 bought in Hamamatsu in 1999.
Owned it for 8 years,what a great car.
The Toyota Live Sound was killer and I never had to replace anything other than tyres and a set of brake pads.
Passed 3 Shaken inspections without a fault :)
Upgraded to my Current '94 Rev 3 Turbo in 2008.
Here it is in my carport with my bike.

Aim for 20 years?

 
Feels like an age away but the first 10 years went quick.

Have had mine for "gulp" 25 years...


Congrats! That's a major milestone.


 


What is the other option. Nothing quite like a two

2019 Suzuki Jimny would pair nicely with a SW20. Pity about the wait times and inflated prices due to demand.
 
Spent the weekend doing a tidy up - went over it with the polisher and put on two coats of wax. Decided to use the air compressor to blow out the polishing pads instead of washing and replacing them constantly. Worked a treat. AC fan was also starting to make a slight noise. Pulled it out, it looked as I expected after 2 decades... filthy. Removed the fan, cleaned it up and lubricated the bearing.

Not much to report with the MR2. Order a few maintenance parts and installed them on the car back in August.
 
Replaced the below:
- Ignition leads
- Dist cap
- Rotor
- Front engine mount
 

 

 

 

 

 
Photos opportunity after the July QLD club meet up under the bridges.

A bunch of OEM parts should be arriving soon from Amayama. Starting to prep for a fuel pump replacement. If anyone has any tips and maintenance suggestions while the tank is out, let me know.
 
We are almost at that time of year to review my fuel economy for 2019 and give the car its top to bottom detail.

Take care not to kink "nylon" high pressure hose from union near engine mount across to fuel filter.
Hose union can be impossible to undo. Tank as near empty as possible. While out, check brass heater pipes for cracking where their brackets are brazed to them. I think it's usually the right rearmost one. Should be rubber mounted on your later model car.(I think).
Inspect inside of tank. Should be shiny silver.(tinned). Maybe clean and an extra coat of paint on outside?
Which pump are you installing? Check all wiring is robust and in really good condition.
Check the several rubber pads glued to tank. They wedge into the tunnel adding rigidity and preventing rattles.
Any extra insulation you can improvise where the wiring penetrates the tunnel is beneficial too. A lot of front tyre noise comes in from there.

What did the front engine mount set you back?

I'm not 100% sure, I would need to find the invoice. Maybe $130-140 at a guess? It was purchased direct from my local Toyota as I believe it might of been the same price Amayama. I didn't look into any aftermarket options to swap to a poly mount to compare costs.

When I did this job on my car, for undoing that fuel pressure pipe connection to the filter, I purchased a 14 mm flare nut type spanner, and used it in combination with a 19 mm open ended spanner to crack the connection, and it came off easily with no damage to the line.
 
Anyway good luck with it.

Any advice you get from me may only be worth what you paid for it.

Currently waiting on 1 more part to arrive before I can do the fuel pump. In the mean time we have a related topic.
 
Fuel economy review for 2019. I now have logged the last 4 years.

My 2019 average L/100km had reduced slightly to 8.80 L/100km from 8.97 L/100km in 2018.

My best economy for 2019 was 6.66 L/100km, worst economy was 10.30 L/100km.

Total travel distance travelled in 2019 was 13173.8km, reduction of 3215.3km from 2018.

Most expensive $ per L fill up was on 15/07/2019 at 1.849 which is up by $0.01 from my most expensive in 2018. Cheapest fill up was on 06/01/2019 at $1.289. The average cost of petrol for me was $1.558 which was a reduction of $0.003 from the 2018 average.
