    No worries, came up while I was looking for something else, seemed to have more about it on American car sites than uk, not ground breaking but good hands on

    I watched this as was a little disappointed tbh They picked a guy to help restore the car but turned out that he had already don't all the work (plus he had a decent garage setup). For Ed to pop in and do a few bits left me a bit bitter.

    Car SOS was a similar theme but was much better in my opinion.

    Agreed. It was all a bit staged (OMG, Ed China has turned up at my doorstep....hmmmmm) and the key details were skipped over. It went from doing a headlining in detail, to rear disc conversions and completely skipped past the carbs and engine tuning. Meh. I like the China and I'm glad the irritating little Brewster is out of the picture, but it could be more techie - which is what the China one wanted all along!!

    I did a 16V conversion into a MK1 myself way back when and trust me, they only covered 5% of what is required in that episode.
