    PAINTING THE INSIDES

    Discussion started by lepthebeard - Mar 11, 2004

    First of all I'm from the wetcoast, and in the winter it rains alot. So there are times when the wife is nagging and you need a serious dose of steel...but it is raining. As you know when you need a fix, you gotta have it. When this happens to me I hit the insides of open, empty box cars. I'm not talking throws, I mean quality. Are there any cats out there who do the same? I love leaving messages to the loaders/unloaders/tramps who may see my shit. And yes I wedge the door open and I do know that nobody will see my work but we all have our reasons. Try it...puts a whole new spin on things, like painting in a tin shack and it's hella parania evoking. Lend me your thoughts...

    ...waste of paint??...naa it's not all about getting noticed for me, I know what I'm up to, I get flicks, I had fun...that's all that matters for me...surprised no one else does this on the regular...word Alabama, imagine seeing them years from now, keeping the tramps company and putting smirks on the faces of workers...

    I've always liked this idea for stealth ups that will run as long as the car, but chances to be seen are so close to zero it's depressing. Freight insides...I dunno. The walls are usually smooth as shit. I've done some hollows and sketches when there's nothing left to do on the outside and I'm out of cars at the layup.

    i got fliks of a couple of inside pieces by porn.
    i didnt catch them runnin though.

    back in 02 i did catch a harsh gs and ribs stacked pieces running on the inside of a blue csx. i was pretty stoked to see it ran that far with the door open.

    i remember doing a thro up inside of a car back in the day, bnut thats cause it was silly cold and i had lit a small fire inside the box car while i waited for my partner to finish up. sounds good and fun to try but i dont like the survalence factor. if your in a boxcar and someone is sneaking up on you your gonna have to get your matrix on to get out of that one.

    as for the rain, id just as soon go to a bar in the rain as opposed to the lay-up.
