Edd China's Workshop Diaries Episode 3 (1986 Range Rover V8 & Electric Ice Cream Van)


The jam-packed third episode with more wrestling with John’s ‘garden-find’ Range Rover and the first part of the build story of my Guinness World Record attempt for the World’s Fastest Electric Ice Cream Van.

    Personally, I don't think this format will work [cue hate]. Honestly, 'Can we build the world's fastest electric ice cream van?' isn't a question I've ever asked & isn't one I want answered. Really, whatever we think of Brewer, his presence was the 'funny' guy to Edd's 'straight' guy. It was that tension which underscored the first X seasons of WD. Somehow, someone else has to be included to give this series a lift. Season 2 revamp?

    I can't help but think Ed would have had a lot less stress in his life if he hadn't befriended that bloody oaf Mike Brewer. The pressure Mike inadvertantly put on Ed with his impulsive and uneducated purchases was unfair and should have been dealt with immediately. Ed would have been better off making friends with someone who knew what was scrap and what was good. Or Ed may have been better off going to view the cars himself and leaving Mike in the garage to sweep up or make the dinner. Sorry that you were burdened with him Ed. I hope you have since deleted him from your phone and Facebook. If he still bothers you or turns up at your house with clapped out bangers, I suggest you call the police and report him for harassment. They can be reached on 999. Hope this helps.

    I'm enjoying this new content (obviously - it's Edd) but something feels not quite right. It could do with some work on the framing of each episode; that is to say, I'm not always quite sure what the bigger picture is of what he's doing. For instance, we seemed to abandon the fuel leak and have some talk of ice cream without any real sense of how it all fits together. I hope this is just teething trouble as it has the makings of a great show.

    At 23:00 when he exclaims "there's only one thing one can do in this situation" I was pondering if he might set fire to the car or something. This thing is so beyond salvation unless you have some form of emotional attachment to the car.

    Hello Edd, Thanks for the vid, just one question: Why did you not remove the RR aluminium boot floor panel and access the fuel pump from there? I recall doing one on my own RR some years back and found it a much easier proposition than dropping the tank. Thanks again! Tim

    Dude. I saw you doing that Alvis headlamp switch and I had a thought. My father passed recently and I will be going through a lot of old things he kept. I know he has switchgear and the like from old Morris, British Leyland and Austin cars and vans he's owned. Can you tell me of any owners clubs that could take them? I wouldn't know what came from what, so I'd probably box them up together. I'd rather someone got use of them than they go to waste.

    So, I do not know for sure, but the device that Edd refers to as a "fuel pressure sensor" on the intake plenum (where he disconnects the fuel line), I believe that is actually a cold start injector. My 1981 Datsun 280ZX has one that looks nearly exactly like that device and it's there to inject extra fuel on cold starts. Again, I don't know for sure and I'm not a Range Rover person.
