Thank you Ryan, its a good site full of info.
Sadly no one in the show was there, there was just 2 of the production crew there, the yard was almost empty other than for a few containers which had spares in that they were flogging off before having to vacate the yard, when i arrived i told one of the guys what i was there to pick up he tried to tell me it was just the rear seats untill i showed him the ebay print off of the auction (i expected issues due to the low price) he wouldnt have it and had to go in the office (blue portacabin used in the show) to check the details himself before i could pay for the seats, they were not rude or anything, but just miffed at the low price they sold for, it also took them 2 days to email me with details of how and were and when i could pick the seats up.
At the time the show had not aired so i didnt know much about it other than the small bit of info in the Ebay listing and i didnt even know the name of the show, but going from the name on the waver "Attaboy" i tracked the show down on the forums they advertised on for people and cars and waited to see the show as i was interested to see the Mini being stripped, but your right about that ****! he is so annoying!! if i had to buy the interior from him i would have walked away as soon as he opened his gob! thankfully for me just unhelpfull miffed production crew is all i has to deal with for around 15 mins.
There was a lot of unsold spares from the show that ended up on Ebay from many of the cars in the show and low prices, at the time i purchased the interior there were a lot of parts for sale with pics from the same yard, one buyer complained and left feedback that the Rolls Royce front grill was bought but then not sent because it had been "stolen" but then another grill was sold for just £200 to another buyer, but also others were happy with spares from a classic MG, a Golf, a Landrover, Escort Cabrio etc.
