    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    As you can probably guess, this is a very dangerous stunt to perform
    and requires quite a bit of training.

    Check with the local police to see what can be done from both safety
    and legal viewpoints. I would also check with your insurance company!

    As far as resources, try having a look at:
    Osterlind Stainless Steel Blindfold: A book is included with it that explains the techniques.
    Mind & Magic of David Berglas: This is a very expensive book but contains
    a wealth of information from a brilliant magician - there is a section on blindfold
    driving in the 1960's subsection.

    As I said before, this is extremely dangerous and you will have to really
    think about this stunt before attempting it. It is very much a publicity stunt
    so I'm a little wary of your experience level - you mind sharing your background?

    Good luck!

    - Stephen

    To be believable, you must first believe.

    What's your background experience with mentalism and publicity stunts?

    With full respect to you, following up your question with "I wana learn the secret." would lead me to believe that possibly you're not ready to be attempting something like this.

    What is your experience level? Then we may be able to point you in directions that best suit where you are right now.

    Hey, thanks Stephen for that info.

    I have already started my hunt for those books.
    As for my background.I have been doin street magic for a couple of years and have been quite successful with God's grace.

    About mentalism....well, I have started performing mentalism stuff around, maybe...an year and a half ago. Have already performed a stunt in which I predicted the outcome of a game. That was great!! As for blindfold...I dont have much knowledge of it...and dint know much which book to refer.

    I understand every sort of danger attatched with the stunt and the precautions that I need to take....and the amount of practicing involved...well...I am ready for it...coz its always the hard work that pays...right! I dont mind spending years practicing it if the need be. Maybe you people can help me with some more info....
    Thanks.
