Andy,

Although I have no engineering background or any other formal training I can say I do work where Scrap heap challenge is filmed. They nicked one of our best buildings believe it or not.
And yes we think its all a big setup but best of luck. If you need a Tea Boy or someone who can drive then count me in. As for welding etc don't bother.

PS. I can draw you a nice route map to the filming location. And if your lucky I'll drop some pyrotechnics in...........

Andy,

I would love to join you. Would certainly be an experience. I am pretty good at coming up with working solutions but I feel I just don't have the engineering background. Most of my experience is bourne of having the guts and commitment to do something and not give up at the first hurdle.

Last post for me on this before you pick your team. I can make tea and coffee, can drive and can certainly shoot. I'm also a bit of a sneaky B.

Go for it Andy. We see the scrapyard they get everything from and we have said that its funny the way certain objects appear in the scrapyard. They are certainly working for good TV.

And I think you would be a good TV/Figurehead.

And Kathleen could be our Lady Ribber

Me too.................

Now, if it involves a shock mitigation seat, we have it covered.


Perhaps RIVA & Co can give us some pointers. BoatBoys Rule!

OK, I'll have a closer look at the Ad when I get time and post back with some basic parameters and try to sort some sort of plan out.

Any update on this folks. Might be able to get a ringside seat with plenty of warning.
