YouTuber records ASMR-worthy restoration of rusty Porsche toy car [Video]

Serhii Viktorov is the crafter behind the YouTube channel, Olly. Viktorov’s specialty is restoring old items like a worse for wear axe, vintage clock and an oil lamp from the 1950s. For his latest project in September, the vlogger restored a rusty toy Porsche 911. 

In the video, which was uploaded to Newsflare, Viktorov started by dismantling the retro toy into its separate plastic and metal parts. He scrubbed the metal frame clean, then applied a rust remover. The car’s body looks nearly immaculate after he revealed its original metallic sheen.

To make it look like new, Viktorov spray-painted the frame yellow. He finished things off by cleaning the plastic parts and spray-painting them silver, black and white. Once dried, he reconnected the pieces and even added his own license plate and Porsche decal stickers.

You’d never guess the toy was ever covered in rust. 

The Porsche 911 first debuted

British car manufacturers could still face higher export tariffs even if there is a post-Brexit trade deal with the EU, according to a letter to the car industry from Britain’s chief Brexit negotiator.

In the letter seen by the BBC, Lord David Frost said the European Commission had rejected proposals for components from non-EU countries used on UK car production lines to be considered British.

Lord Frost admitted in the letter to the car industry that the UK had failed to persuade the EU to agree to the idea – adding that they “obviously cannot insist on it”.

This means that even if a zero tariffs trade deal is agreed between the two parties, UK-manufactured vehicles that do not have enough British components will attract tariffs
