    the lights on billboards, are they glass or plastic? im not sure how to go about breaking it.. someone suggested painting it black but im not sure how t will work out...

    for one, im sure you can still see light and it might be suspicious, and for 2 im not sure how smoothly it will go on..


    so what do you guys use?? rocks?? maybe a spark plug is its glass?? hammer?? i just dont want to fuck this up.

    any advice is more than apreciated..

    hell yeah man, if you do hit up a billboard send me some pictures.


    painting it black would be a lot slicker than taking a hammer to it. you could just put like duct tape over it quickly or something like that.

    well i just went to check it out. the light wasnt on, but there is a little bit of visibility and the police like this area already so im a little unsure as to if i should hit up a different one or not..

    but what i was thinking was maybe putting a bag over the light, like a black backpack, or a couple garbage bags and tieing it off or something, i dont really want to break it.. seems like those things cost a lot of money.. but hell i dunno we'll see when it comes down to it

    you should be ok once youre up the man, i dont think the cops will be looking up at the sky for you... unless its visible like in the street coming down the road like going up a hill or some shit like that...

    cover the lights up with a sheet or towel...

    good luck

    usually those light are very hot. if you try to cover them with something you run the risk of starting a fire.

    The right way to do a billboard:

    IF your lucky - theres a power line connected to the board, connected to a wooden telephone pole. Take care of the pole with a chainsaw - This should sever the wire suppplying power to the lights. Voila! Youve got darkness..

    Just go up there and paint the damn thing. If you don't think you can get away with a piece, then paint a simple, or a throw-up. It's all about weighing risk vs. reward.
