Rico is also a judge in this years Shed of the Year Competition, hopefully he will bring in his unique take on salvaging to the shedmix
Rico has a passion for what he does and its amazing how many other people it resonates with. I look forward to seeing more of what he does and if he ever gets a UK TV show it will be a hit...far better than Scrapheap Challenge.
Excellent story, I just love the stuff the Rico makes and can't wait for another series. He has also inspired me to start recycling items around the garden, garage and workshop to give them a new lease of life. Wish we had more on the TV like him.

Comments from feedback form - "ok"
Maybe Mr Daniels needs to attend the night course on welding as he advised in his boat trailer episode.because his welding on the trailer is sub-standard and would probably fail a stress test.

I want to have Rico's babies!
But if that's a no-no can he comment on the Mutoid Scrap Company who display brilliant stuff at Glastonbury Festival. Does he know them? They produce stunning and mean looking sculpture, although cant recall any useful practical items which Rico does. You are a star, have been looking for you all my life, I am a better DIYer than some men, and have done up houses and furniture for about 40 years. London girl, believe in the maxim, where there's muck, there's brass. More shows please. Can help you sell your stuff. If for sale. Love Ya
I too am a kindred spirit, where did yo learn your french language ?
Well done Ricoh
In an age of bland,'formula' television your programme is brilliant. Eccentric style of presentation doesn't hide true genius and genuine enthusiasm. Well done. Winty
