Good idea mate. I think you'd need to get in early though, and give Mark a good shoulder rub at the same time!

You know how busy it is down there. I'm not sure how keen Mark would be to come off the spanners and lock down the rollers for a day for probably minimal cost. Unless he agreed to do a weekend..... but again....unlikely - his wife will kill him lol

I'm from up north and have a biggish gingerish beard, work at jlr and drive a scoobs, but i'm only 5'6 and no tattoos. So it's like looking the mirror.... but not! (Que Face off quote).

if he works in gaydon I could find him, was thinking who was on here and who else might be around at work anyway...
