In the latest episode of Turnin Rust, the team takes on a new challenge: a 1972 Opel GT that has been sitting for 30 years. The car has been untouched for so long that it’s hard to even see what color it used to be.
The team starts by taking the car apart and finding all the problems that come with a car that hasn’t been started in three decades.
The fuel tank is completely rusted, the engine is seized up, and there’s a lot of work to be done to get the car running again.
The team cleans out the fuel tank and tries to get the engine turning again. After a lot of effort, they finally get it to turn over. With a little bit of tuning, they manage to get the car running for the first time in 30 years.
But the work doesn’t stop there. The team still has a lot of work to do to get the car in drivable condition. They replace the brakes, the exhaust, and work on the suspension to get the car roadworthy.
After a lot of hard work, the team finally takes the car out for a test drive. The car runs smoothly and handles surprisingly well for a car that has been sitting for so long.
The team is able to bring this classic Opel GT back to life, and it’s ready for the road once again.
